Data Sharing Initiative

By streamlining data-sharing operations between College Access Providers (CAPs) and OSSE’s Statewide Longitudinal Education Database (SLED) system, C3N is driving a first-of-its-kind Data Sharing Initiative. Over 20 members of the network annually submit data – which details the college access, readiness, and success services that their students receive - through a web portal and then receive a wide range of student-level outcome data in return, including SAT & PSAT test scores, FARMs status, DC-CAS and PARCC exam results, and postsecondary data from National Student Clearinghouse. This unprecedented initiative gives CAPs the information they need to improve programming; moreover, it allows the network to highlight and share effective practices, bringing about greater programmatic alignment throughout the District. The Data Sharing Initiative aims to increase postsecondary readiness.
