Current Activities

Last spring, NPEA conducted focus groups and 1:1 interviews around our annual conference to solicit feedback, stories, suggestions, and more to guide the future of the NPEA Data Counts project. In addition, we released the 2017 Data Survey Analysis and Indicator 10 Spotlight.

Currently, NPEA is focused on releasing the newest edition of the NPEA Data Collection Tool in the fall of 2018. We also continue to distribute targeted professional development offerings through NPEA Data Counts, including best practices briefs related to certain indicators (e.g., financial aid gap) and member data spotlights that focus on learning from organizations and schools with exceptionally strong data collection and analysis practices.

All NPEA Data Counts updates are marketed under the banner of “Data Counts Connection,” and will continue rolling out these initiatives throughout 2018-2019. Stay tuned!

If you are an organization or school interested in joining NPEA so that you can participate in NPEA Data Counts, please review our list of member benefits, core values, and we invite you to Join NPEA!
