Franklin Welcomes You

Franklin is the QMER Data Server, where we house the huge, public-access dataset on education in Alabama we are building. In combines data from  the Stanford Education Data Archive (SEDA), the Early Childhood Longitudinal Program (ECLS), and the Adolescent Brain Cognitive Development (ABCD) Study.



From the Stanford Education Data Archive. Nationally representative measures of district-level student math and reading achievement for grades 3-8 from 2008 on. And for fun we've added on things from the Common Core of Data, the Bureau of Labor Statistics, the American Community Survey, and more. This is the big picture. Dr. Pendola and the AED research team use this data.
