Title: Common Data Definitions (CDD)

Standards Profile

ISB STATUS =  INHERITED.   The MIAP Common Data Definitions (MIAP CDD) were developed as a set of data standards to be used across a variety of data sharing processes within the UK education sector.

ISB Decision


The purpose of ISB approval is to acknowledge the importance and current use of the standard, and to alert new projects to the fact that CDD in its entirety is not seen as the strategic direction of travel for standardisation of all the data items within the standard.

MIAP CDD version 1 was first released in 2004 and is compliant with the e-gif Government Data Standards Catalogue. CDD facilitates the creation of a Unique Learner Number (ULN) and the development of a Personal Learning Record containing participation and achievement data.
