AERA Institute on Statistical Analysis for Education Policy

 

Description

The Institute's goal is to build the capacity of the U.S. education research community to use large-scale national and international data sets such as those from the National Center for Education Statistics (NCES), NSF, and other federal agencies for basic, policy, and applied research. Hands-on training is provided in the application of large-scale data sets, with special emphasis on using these data sets for policy-related research in education. In 2016, the Institute will focus on research questions related to mathematics education. AERA Grants Governing Board members, agency staff, and outside experts jointly provide this training. The Institute will focus specifically on intersections of mathematics education and outcomes. Policy-relevant topics include such issues as students opportunities to learn specific mathematical content; access to high-quality mathematics teachers; students course-taking and career plans; and students mathematics achievement, beliefs, and attitudes. Patterns related to social class, race/ethnicity, language, and gender will be considered.
