Updates to the Certification Data Exchange Project

ACTE, in cooperation with a number of national and state partners, is supporting a project to expand and improve data exchange between industry certification organizations and state longitudinal data systems. The project began in January 2013, following a successful data sharing pilot between CompTIA and Illinois. The Certification Data Exchange Project is seeking to replicate the success of this pilot with other states, on the way to developing best practices and, eventually, a national clearinghouse for data exchange. However, many states participating in the project hit legal roadblocks early in the process.

We believe that is about to change. CompTIA announced, at the National Association of CTE Information conference last week, several changes to their participation in this project that should better facilitate data exchange, including sharing more data elements and easing legal burdens while continuing to protect test-takers and students.

ACTE will be in touch in the next several weeks with states who had previously signed on to the project to discuss moving forward.
