Distance Learning Dataset Training


Welcome to the NCES Distance Learning Dataset
Training (or DLDT) System. The DLDT is an online, interactive tool that allows
you to learn about NCES data across the education spectrum and evaluate
its suitability for particular purposes. The DLDT online training modules are designed
to introduce you to NCES, its many data products, their design, and considerations for use to
facilitate successful analyses. The DLDT modules provide information about specific
NCES datasets and online tools needed to find published reports, acquire, access,
and explore data, and create data files. The modules also explain how to conduct analyses
using selected statistical software packages and/or by using online data tools provided by NCES. This training system has been designed to provide
maximum flexibility in answering questions you may have about the NCES datasets
described within it, beginning with the fundamental question:
“Are these data for me?” The DLDT allows you to access the information
you need, at your own pace. It provides instruction in how to properly use NCES
public-use and restricted-use datasets. All of this training and information can be
found on the NCES DLDT website. Let’s take a look at some of the training
options offered in the DLDT. For new users, the Common Modules provide
information to help explain NCES data across the education spectrum General information about NCES Surveys and administrative data collections Published data products and reports Research Methods Overviews of many online tools that are available to help
users access and analyze NCES data How to access public- and restricted-use datasets Maybe you already know what you’re looking for. The dataset-specific modules provide both general and detailed information about specific
studies conducted by NCES and how to use and analyze the particular
datasets appropriately. The DLDT is organized by the type of data collected so that you can easily find datasets of interest. To review the different data-set topics,

information and appropriately use data in order to explore research questions
and test hypotheses.
