Dr. Kelly Rapp, director of Missouri State University’s Career Center, has been selected to attend the National Center for Education Statistics (NCES) Data Institute: Using Federal Datasets to Support Research on Postsecondary Education.
Participating in the institute’s events
The institute will offer an extensive introduction to NCES datasets and research methodologies.
Rapp’s research team examined how academic major changes affected students’ ability to attain a degree within six years.
“The use of federal postsecondary datasets can reveal trends in college student behavior – both during and after college,” Rapp said. “Research like this can help us to improve practices, which can ensure increased student success.”
Events will take place during a conference that will occur June 8 -10 over Zoom.
NCES collects and analyzes data related to education in the U.S. and abroad.
It’s the primary federal entity for managing data statistics in the country.
