Summary

In 1994 the National Education Statistics Agenda Committee (NESAC) of the National Forum on Education Statistics, National Center for Education Statistics (NCES), established the Core Data Task Force to identify and define a set of "core elements" for the collection and reporting of data about enduring and emerging issues at local, state, and federal levels. This document serves as the Task Force's report to NESAC on the first phase of its activity, including the process undertaken by the Task Force to identify the basic data elements described in the Task Force's first report, "Basic Data Elements for Elementary and Secondary Education Information Systems," some areas not addressed in the "Basic Data Elements" document, and recommendations for future action. The Task Force began with educational indicators identified by the Council of Chief State School Officers and then identified school finance and facilities as two areas for which indicators were lacking. These areas, however, were reserved for future attention, and the original list was refined through a discussion of the data elements needed for reporting and a review of indicators in other NCES. Indicators for which data elements are needed were then identified and screened through criteria developed at the beginning of the process. These criteria are related to the timeliness, reliability, and validity of data collected. The following areas not addressed in the original "Basic Data Elements" document are briefly reviewed: (1) sources of data; (2) level of data collection; (3) feasibility of collecting measurable data; (4) subjective data; and (5) complexity of issues involved. Recommendations are made for future action at federal, Forum, state, and local levels. In general, these recommendations center on the dissemination and integration of these data elements. Five appendixes list indicator reports reviewed, the indicators considered, key questions, and the basic data elements for student and staff reports. (SLD)
