Definition: As defined by the U.S. Department of Education,, the Education Data Exchange Network (EDEN) is a centralized portal through which states submit their educational data to the U.S. Department of Education. Critical directory data are submitted, as well as data on schools, services, staffing, students, and educational outcomes in order to meet the data requirements of annual and final grant reporting, specific program mandates, and the Government Performance and Results Act.

What This Means: EDEN provides the structure for submission of data by state education agencies to the federal government on programs such as Title I, Title III, Special Education, Vocational/Career Technology, and Migrant Education. The information collected meets most of the needs for No Child Left Behind reporting, including assessment data and highly qualified teacher data. In addition, it provides directory and summary information formerly collected by NCES in the Common Core of Data, and data needed by the Office for Civil Rights. The EDEN network collects data at the school, district and state levels for some data elements, thus providing more useful information for monitoring program success. EDEN files are submitted throughout the school year as data become available.
