Definition: School Codes for the Exchange of Data (SCED) consists of a comprehensive listing of secondary school courses and a set of codes to provide unique identifiers for the courses. It also provides a framework for recording detailed information about the nature and structure of the courses.

What This Means: SCED was developed with substantial state and local input. It is anticipated that use of this coding structure by districts will help to ensure that students are appropriately placed into courses when they move from district to district. It will also help postsecondary institutions to evaluate the quality of the academic programs completed by applicants.
