This GovEx Academy-developed course is a self-guided online introduction to Data Standards that can be a starting point for Data Management. You will explore civic data, data standards, data management, and the importance of standardized data processes for launching effective open data.
By the end of the course, you will be able to define data standards, recognize and distinguish between the three categories of data standards, appreciate the benefits of implementing data standards, differentiate between internal and external data standards, and select the appropriate standard for open data.
The course is self-paced, allowing you to start and stop whenever you like. It comprises three components: completing pre and post-surveys, reading suggested resources and watching pre-recorded lectures, and completing quizzes to test your understanding of the material. The quizzes help you assess your mastery of each module's content, and you may retake them as many times as you need. Upon passing the quiz, your score will be immediately available, and all correct answers will be provided.
