We are currently negotiating with the Ministry of Education, the Ministry of Social Development and the Department of Internal Affairs a process for sharing information about Computers in Homes participants. We already have most of the information we need in past google sheets and the Privacy Commissioner has assured us that we can share this information, provided the data is only used for research purposes and any analysis or results will not identify individual families. The one piece of missing data is the birth date of CIH participants.
This is captured on the 2degrees signup forms and I would like to get an indication from coordinators how much effort would be involved in transferring this data into the following Google Sheets: CIH 2013-14, CIH 2014-15 and CIH 2015-16. I will be progressively replacing the “AP Form Name” field with “Birth Date” in these three google sheets so that we can capture birth dates in a central database.
My understanding is that all CIH families complete an internet signup form that includes their birth date, even if they don’t want the internet, so hopefully you still have these forms. Please keep a record of any time spent in extracting this data and entering into Google Sheets, as we may be able to remunerate you for this additional effort.
STOP PRESS: This is now all go and must be completed by 15 July 2016
