Project Description: I am working on a multi-state project examining collaborative efforts to improve school readiness. I need help transferring transcript data into a excel spreadsheet for further analysis. Expectations are that this portion of the project would be completed by the end of the fall semester. Due to the sensitivity of the data, it will need to be completed on-campus. Upon completion of the first part, the data will be coded to see if organizations fulfilled their commitments to the collaboration or not. If the student remains interested in the project, he or she can continue to help with the second part of the research.

Requirements for Student Applicants: Honors student, interest in education, public policy, and/or social sciences

Starting Date: Oct 20th, 2010
