“If the work is done right, California can set a higher bar for data use.”
On May 10th, the California EDGE Coalition sponsored a Capitol Legislative Briefing that featured presentations on how California can transform the way we collect, display, and use data to better inform all key stakeholders: individuals making life decisions, education and training providers, policymakers, businesses, regions, and researchers. Presenters included:
• The Data Quality Campaign, a national data advocacy organization that champions state actions for effective data policy. The DQC presented best practices and lessons learned from other states who have implemented their own statewide longitudinal data systems.
• Credential Engine, national organizations dedicated to creating a transparent credential marketplace. They discussed their ongoing efforts and the significant work underway in several states.
• The Los Angeles Area Chamber of Commerce, which is exploring regional data projects including a partnership with Credential Engine. The Chamber also pointed to Project Signal, a regional effort underway in the Bay Area.
