Gov’t Proceeds With Plans to Mine Personal Data on Students

A follow-up to my previous posting, Federal Gov’t Wants To Mine College and University Student Data, is this recently released report: Feasibility of a Student Unit Record System Within the Integrated Postsecondary Education Data System (168 pages, PDF)

  • “This report describes the feasibility of collecting individual enrollment and financial aid information for each student in postsecondary education. NCES held three public meetings with key stakeholders from institutions, states and other interested parties to get feedback on such issues as burden, cost, and privacy, and to solicit information on other technical aspects of developing such a unit record system.”
