The Elementary/Secondary Information System (ELSi) is an NCES web application that allows users to quickly view public and private school data and create custom tables and charts using data from the Common Core of Data (CCD) and Private School Survey (PSS).
ELSi utilizes variables that are frequently requested by users for producing tables. It is a fast, easy way to obtain basic statistical data on U.S. schools. When generating custom tables, ELSi allows the user to choose row variables, column variables and filters to refine the data included in tables produced.
ELSi includes three tools:
- quickFacts allows users to quickly view single data elements for a state, district or school
- expressTables allows users to view data tables at the state, county, district, and school levels that have been frequently requested
- tableGenerator allows users to create custom tables for a state, district, or school
Each tool contains a Help/Tutorial located at the top of the screen.
