AERA Division D Call for Nominees for the 2018 Robert L. Linn Distinguished Address Award

Division D welcomes nominations for the 2018 Robert L. Linn Distinguished Address Award. This annual award recognizes the important contributions of Robert L. Linn to educational measurement and assessment policy. It honors a scholar whose work bridges educational measurement and some other significant area of research (e.g., assessment policy, learning theory, curriculum and instruction) and has resulted in a widespread positive impact on the field of educational measurement. The award recipient’s contributions may include theoretical or technical developments, conceptualizations of educational measurement issues that have enhanced public understanding, or innovative ideas that improve the validity and effectiveness of educational assessments.

The following criteria will be used in the award selection process:

1.       The nominee should have a substantial publication record in educational measurement. All or a substantial number of the publications should reflect contributions to another area of research (e.g., assessment policy, learning theory, curriculum and instruction).

2.       The nominee’s work must be judged to be of high quality and to have had significant impact from the perspective of both measurement experts and scholars or practitioners in the second field.

The awardee will receive a cash award of $1,000 at the Division D business meeting and will be invited by Division D to give an address at the 2019 annual meeting of the American Educational Research Association. In addition, each year immediately following the address, the written version of the presentation will be submitted to an appropriate assessment or measurement journal.

A nomination must include three items:

a.        A 1-page summary of the nature and significance of the nominee’s work and a description of how it bridges educational measurement and some other significant area of research or practice,
