Child Care and Early Education Research Connections

a PSC Research Project

Investigator:   George C. Alter

ICPSR will be responsible for the following set of tasks as part of the Child Care and Early Education Research Connections project in collaboration with Columbia University:



Web site infrastructure (IWS & RDB): ICPSR will be responsible for housing, installing, configuring, maintaining, evaluating, and planning the enhancement of the website infrastructure on which the Interactive Web Site (IWS) and Research Data Base (RDB) rely. This will include hardware, network, system software (Linux), web server applications (Apache, Cocoon, Tomcat), the relational database (Oracle) infrastructure developed during the first 5 years of the project and extending to new technologies incorporated in the second 5 years.



Web site design (IWS/RDB): ICPSR will be responsible for continuing to maintain and enhance the reliability and usability of the CC&EERC site. Enhancements will include web design features such as the appearance, navigation, search/browse, and rich linkage elements of the site. These will require changes to both the Interactive Webs Site (IWS) and the underlying Resource Data Base (RDB).



Archive of Datasets (AD): ICPSR will acquire, process, document , archive, and disseminate research data relevant to child care and early education policy. There is an existing list of large scale surveys and key administrative data that NCCP and ICPSR will acquire, process, and disseminate through the IWS/AD. This list will continue to be reviewed and revised. Priorities for selecting data to seek and the level of processing data sets will receive will be set in conjunction with NCCP, OPRE and the appropriate committee of the project’s Advisory Council.



Technical Assistance (TA): The IWS already contains a number of elements supporting the TA objective: email links for users to report problems or give feedback, tutorials explaining key concepts of data processing and data usage, user guides explaining key aspects of complex data collections, sample setups for loading and using data in statistical packages, listservs and bulleting boards to allow theme or data set oriented collaboration. Where indicated these tools will be refined. Additional tutorials and user guides are planned. A more user friendly on-line analysis interface is being planned.

Funding Period: 09/30/2008 to 03/31/2014
