2017 Recipient
          

Morgan Polikoff
University of Southern California

Dr. Morgan Polikoff ’s research focuses on the role of standards, assessment, and accountability, a central and high-priority focus of current U.S. educational reform, and the degree to which the related policies are aligned and coherent. His analyses, motivated by theory and resting on a sound empirical base, test core assumptions of the prevalent standards-based accountability reform movement. Dr. Polikoff is a rare scholar whose work speaks to imminent policy questions but also to basic and foundational issues. The Committee was impressed by the quality, quantity, and methodological sophistication and care of his work, but also by its saliency. The questions he poses are core to student learning and hold promise of leveraging dramatic improvements in educational policy and practice and at a scale that matters.            

This award is to recognize a scholar who has conducted a distinguished program of cumulative educational research in any field of educational inquiry within the first decade following receipt of their doctoral degree.
