Fostering State-to-State Data Exchanges


This brief, which is part of a series of papers recently published by the Institute for Higher Education Policy, draws on the lessons from the Multistate Longitudinal Data Exchange to identify how a broader state-to-state exchange could be established to help answer key questions about postsecondary education. 

Among the key lessons summarized by the brief are that the very real barriers to establishing such an exchange are surmountable and these exchanges can produce real and actionable information for students and their parents as well as policymakers.
