IES releases RFI on Existence and Use of Large Datasets To Address Education Research Questions

The National Center for Education Research (NCER), a center within the U.S. Department of Education’s Institute of Education Sciences, funds and coordinates high-quality, innovative research that addresses the biggest challenges facing education in the 21st century. Through this request for information (RFI), NCER seeks public input to help us identify existing large datasets that may be useful for research and to understand the challenges and limitations that may affect access and their value for research. Comments must be received by May 31, 2022. See the RFI here.

The Open Authentic Data community under DXtera is formulating a response to this RFI. If you are interested in joining this response please contact Lauren Lopez at
