Letter to Tech Providers on Scorecard API

Friday, March 4, 2016

The Postsec Data Collaborative authored a letter advising technology providers on how to best utilize the Department of Education's release of the Application Programming Interface (API), which makes all of the data used to build the Scorecard publicly accessible. The letter encourages the technology community to use this data to create innovative tools that serve low‐income students and focus on the particular data points that are crucial to the decision of where to attend college. The Workforce Data Quality Campaign, along with other organizations, co-sign the letter.
