Advancing Knowledge and Building the Research Infrastructure in Education and STEM Learning

a PSC Research Project

Investigator:   George C. Alter

This work plan details the services that the Inter-University Consortium for Political and Social Research (ICPSR) will provide for the American Educational Research Association (AERA) as a partner in their data sharing and utilization initiative for major NSF-funded data collections. ICPSR’s data preparation and archiving services will begin towards the end of year one, but will be primarily concentrated in years two and three of the project grant. ICPSR’s services will include: a) assisting with identifying and recruiting major NSF-funded datasets to be deposited for archiving and public dissemination; b) acquiring, preserving, processing, and disseminating deposited datasets, including preparing them for online exploration and analysis; c) developing a unique Education Data Archive Web page at ICPSR; d) providing technical assistance, specifically to grant awardees but also to other data users, proactively and as necessary; e) and periodically reporting to AERA on work progress and data usage. The project aims to acquire, process, and make available three to four datasets a year, for two consecutive years, resulting in six to eight datasets available for secondary analysis by small grant awardees as well as the educational research community more broadly.

Funding Period: 01/01/2010 to 10/31/2014
