The Common Data Set (CDS) initiative is a collaborative effort among data providers in the higher education community and publishers as represented by the College Board, Peterson’s (part of The Thomson Corporation), U.S. News & World Report, and Wintergreen/Orchard House.
The combined goal of this collaboration is to improve the quality and accuracy of information provided to all involved in a student’s transition into higher education, as well as to reduce the reporting burden on data providers. This goal is attained by the development of clear, standard data items, and definitions. These data elements are commonly requested by external publications.
