NCES Data Institute
With support from NCES, AIR operates the NCES Data Institute: Using Federal Datasets to Support Research on Postsecondary Education—an intensive introduction to NCES datasets and research methodologies using large-scale national data sources.
AIR recruits experienced IPEDS users to develop and deliver a curriculum that takes a broad view of IPEDS data to assure the quality of the submission of these data and improve the skills of those using these data. Educators learn from NCES staff about the latest changes to IPEDS and develop their skills with various IPEDS data tools.
