The authors, who represent a family foundation, a college, a university, and a public school system, describe the process of developing an agreement that allows student-level data to be shared for research and evaluation purposes. Keys to reaching the agreement included clear distinctions among roles and access to data, strict adherence to consent and confidentiality agreements, and a shared commitment to using data to improve student outcomes.
