Within the CEC, the Data Coordination Core (DCC) provides state-of-the-art data collection and data management expertise and services. The DCC works collaboratively with other CEC cores and with BUILD, NRMN and NIH consortium members to rack participation of students and faculty in DPC activities. The results are documented data sets used to evaluate the Hallmarks of Success and to achieve consortium-wide goals.
The Specific Aims of the DCC are to:
1. Oversee and direct data collection for the consortium-wide evaluation the CEC is tasked with providing to the DPC.
2. Implement strategies to streamline and strengthen data collection to maximize response rates and standardization of data being collected.
3. Maintain and enhance the CEC Tracker system used to collect information from BUILD programs regarding student and faculty participation in BUILD activities.
4. Support analysis and training relating to data collection and use of resulting data for consortium-wide and other analyses.
