Conference Presentation on Teacher-Student Data Link Data Models

A conference presentation I did with esteemed colleagues from the Data Quality Campaign (DQC) and Arkansas Department of Education (ADE) was just posted to the U.S. Department of Education's NCES site here:

About the conference: "Co-sponsored by the Texas Education Agency and the U.S. Department of Education’s National Center for Education Statistics (NCES), the MIS Conference brought together the people who work with information collection, management, transmittal, and reporting in school districts and state education agencies."

VI–A: Teacher-Student Data Link in Data Models From Transactional Systems to the Data Warehouse

Laura Sonn, Data Quality Campaign
Cody Decker, Arkansas Department of Education
Jim Goodell, CELT Corporation

    The presenters will examine how the teacher-student data link (TSDL) may be represented in various data models: operational/transactional systems, interoperability models (such as P-20 State Core), and data warehouse. Different uses of the TSDL have different implications for how and how often the data is collected, verified, stored, and presented. Audience participation is encouraged around each state's uses for the link and definitions for "teacher of record" and "contributing educators." The discussion will inform a proposed reference model adaptable to state-specific needs. Finally, the presenters will introduce a conceptual draft capability maturity model for roster verification for participant feedback.
