A collaborative of K-12 and higher education organizations announced last week the creation of a set of voluntary common data standards to help states build a universal language for their longitudinal data systems.

The move will make it easier to compare student performance across states, said Gene Wilhoit, the executive director of the Council of Chief State School Officers, one of the organizations leading the project. The data standards will complement the development of common academic standards, which, so far, have been adopted by 36 states and the District of Columbia.
