Five Presentations Accepted for AERA 2009
Empirical Education will be heading to sunny San Diego next April! Once again, Empirical will have a strong showing at the 2009 American Educational Research Association conference, which will be held in downtown San Diego on April 13-17, 2009. Our presentations will span several divisions, including Learning & Instruction, Measurement & Research Methodology, and Research, Evaluation, & Assessment in Schools. Research topics will include:
Examining the Efficacy of a Sight-Word Reading Program for Students with Significant Cognitive Disabilities
Probing the Contents of the Black Box: Complementary Approaches to Answering the How of “What Works”
Estimating Program Impacts After the Control Group Joins Treatment: Comparing Extra- and Quasi-experimental Methods
As a follow-up to our successful 2008 AERA New York reception at Henri Bendel’s Chocolate Room, Empirical Education plans to host another “meet and greet” at this year’s conference as well. Details about the reception will be announced on our website soon.
