NCES’s Distance Learning Dataset Training (DLDT) Has a New Addition: EdSurvey Training Modules

Modules on how to use the EdSurvey R package to analyze various NCES data have been added to NCES’s Distance Learning Dataset Training (DLDT) system. The DLDT is an interactive web tool that allows data users to learn about NCES data products and to appraise their usefulness for various purposes. With DLDT, you can learn where and how to find and explore NCES data, including both public-use and restricted-use data sets. The available training modules span administrative data, national and international assessment data, and longitudinal and cross-sectional survey data.

For EdSurvey, three DLDT modules have been added. The first module provides a basic overview of EdSurvey. The second module provides instructions on installing and loading EdSurvey and shows users how to manipulate and analyze large-scale assessment data with examples from both NAEP and Trends in International Mathematics and Science Study (TIMSS). The third module focuses on longitudinal data analysis. It also covers installation and loading EdSurvey, but uses examples from the Early Childhood Longitudinal Study, Kindergarten Class of 2010-11 (ECLS-K:2011) to show EdSurvey users how to manipulate and analyze data.

If you are new to the DLDT, consider beginning your journey with this introduction video.
