NYSED Data Reporting

The Data Reporting section provides information on the electronic systems used to securely transmit data between the New York State Education Department and the entities who are required to collect and report it to NYSED. In addition, it provides supporting requirements and resources for school officials and other reporting entities to verify that the data they have collected and reported are accurate. It also provides, in the form of reports to State and Federal policy makers, parents, and the general public, the final outcomes of these data collection efforts.

Data are collected from schools, districts and other education providers through the use of computerized data systems, then issued back to them in various forms as reports and tables. Data are collected and reported in accordance with Federal and State regulations. Regulations may contain specific requirements about how data are collected and reported, and policies often provide guidelines as to what may be considered valid data, both for collection and reporting.
