ED.gov launches new interactive website

The U.S. Department of Education has launched a new interactive Web site aimed at making accurate and timely education data available in a single place.

ED Data Express consolidates relevant data collected by the Department from several different sources and provides search tools that allow users to create individualized reports.

Users will be able to access data collected by several of the Department’s program offices, the National Center for Education Statistics, and The College Board. Data include results of state tests and the National Assessment of Educational Progress, graduation rates, and school accountability information. ED Data Express also publishes budget figures and demographics.
