ERDC Data in Action

ERDC annually responds to over 50 data requests for P20W data from other state agencies and researchers. Additionally, individuals and organizations access our dashboards to find facts and figures to support their work. ERDC expands the state's capacity to examine the Washington state education ecosystem by connecting people to this unique resource, all while maintaining student privacy. The following is a subset of the dashboards, projects, and publications that involved ERDC in recent years:
