SEDA is a publicly-available database including information about student performance on standardized tests in every public school district in the U.S. SEDA is based on over 200 million test scores taken by students in grades 3-8 from 2009 through 2013. There are several upcoming opportunities to learn more about the Stanford Education Data Archive directly from the SEDA team.
Sean Reardon, Andrew Ho, Benjamin Shear, and Erin Fahle will lead SEDA workshops at the 2017 SREE conference in Washington, D.C. and the AERA conference in San Antonio, TX. These workshops will provide a detailed description of what SEDA contains and how the dataset was constructed. They will include a description of how the test scores are linked to a common scale, a discussion of the sources and magnitude of uncertainty in the estimates, and a guide for interpretation of the estimates and how they can be appropriately used in both descriptive and causal research.
