American Educational Research Association Funding Opportunity: “AERA Institute on Statistical Analysis for Education Policy Call for Applications” (deadline is Jan. 6, 2010). “With support from the National Science Foundation (NSF) and assistance from the National Center for Education Statistics (NCES), the AERA Grants Program announces its AERA Institute on Statistical Analysis for Education Policy. The Institute’s goal is to help develop a critical mass of U.S. educational researchers using NCES and NSF data sets for basic, policy, and applied research. Hands-on training is provided in the use of large-scale national data sets, with special emphasis on using these data sets for policy-related research in education. The Institute has three components: (1) instruction in the use of large-scale federal data sets such as those supported by NCES and NSF, with focus on a different data set each year; (2) methodological training appropriate to the analysis of large-scale, often longitudinal, data sets pertinent to educational policy research; and (3) discussion of current issues of policy and practice for which the focal data set is relevant. AERA members, agency staff, and outside experts jointly provide this training. Underrepresented minority researchers are strongly encouraged to apply.

Description:

In 2010 the Institute will focus on education policy issues, such as mathematics achievement, that can be addressed using data from the Early Childhood Longitudinal Study, Kindergarten Class of 1998-99 (ECLS-K). The Institute will address issues such as selection bias, modeling achievement growth over time, and the problems and pitfalls of the ECLS-K data set. The session will provide hands-on instruction to help participants develop knowledge and skills in the use of the ECLS-K data for education policy research and application.

Participant Grants:

A select group of scholars will be chosen to participate in the Institute. Those selected for participation will receive support covering the Institute’s fees, transportation to Washington, DC, housing, and per diem for the dates of the Institute.

Dates and Location:

May 20-22, 2010, in Washington, DC.
