Have you ever read a paper and thought "I wish I could get my hands on that data!" Have you ever thought about doing a meta-analysis, using data from several different studies, including data you did not collect? Have you wished there was a way to make your data available to others? Have you developed a new analytic technique and wished for data to test it on outside of the projects you yourself have been involved in? Sharing computing-education data would make these and other new projects possible.
The DCER project is investigating the feasibility of creating a data repository that allows researchers to share data related to Computer Science Education.
