(Thanks to Jonathan Lew for this info)
January 10-13, 2011
Applications close Nov 30, 2010
Budget-conscious students take note: there is no fee to attend these seminars! Plus NCES will also pay for transportation, hotel accommodations, and a fixed per diem for meals and incidental expenses during the training seminar. It's a great deal for students who want to learn how to do secondary data analysis on a national dataset.
Main NAEP database contains nationally representative achievement scores of 4th, 8th, and 12th graders from public and non-public schools in a variety of academic subjects. The database also contains background information on the students who were assessed and their learning environment.
This seminar is aimed at faculty and advanced graduate students from colleges and universities.
Participants attending this seminar should have a solid understanding of basic statistics, including procedures required for analyzing survey data, and should have some familiarity with measurement theory.
