Abstract: This paper intends to review education-related datasets, including data from household surveys, learning assessments and field experiments, publicly available for researchers and students interested in conducting education research. It also presents ideas on how those data can be used in empirical studies and identifies some major potential sources of those datasets. Issues in education have shifted from access to quality learning and at the same time, randomized control trial (RCT) has become the gold standard in measuring the impacts of education programs. The paper also notices the emerging field of educational data mining employed to predict student performance or to identify at-risk students.
