NCES: Distance Learning Dataset Training

The National Center for Education Statistics (NCES) offers a number of data products from its myriad studies on education. With the Distance Learning Dataset Training (DLDT) system, NCES provides "an online, interactive tool that allows you to learn about the National Center for Education Statistics (NCES) data products across the education spectrum and evaluate them for your particular purposes." These free, self-paced modules are designed to aid researchers and professionals, as well as students and general audiences, in accessing NCES reports and datasets and in "conduct[ing] analyses using selected statistical software packages and/or by using data tools provided on the NCES website." DLDT suggests that new users begin with a set of seven introductory common modules, while users who are familiar with NCES can choose from numerous dataset-specific modules which are organized by data type, such as longitudinal surveys and administrative data. Each module on this resource gives a brief description of its content, as well as its run-time and slide count.
