SIG Purpose
The purpose of the Advanced Studies of National Databases (ASOND) Special Interest Group (SIG) is to advance knowledge of the contexts and practices of education through facilitating awareness and understanding of the rigorous research methods required for analysis of national databases.  The ASOND SIG is interested in the use of national databases for both substantive and methodological research. 
Message from the 2023-2025 SIG Chair

Welcome aboard! 

As part of the ASOND community, we are a collective of educational researchers passionate about exploring the vast landscape of large-scale national, international, state, and district datasets. We delve into the intricacies of these datasets, uncover best practices, and apply our findings to address critical educational questions. We recognize the complexities of these datasets related to sampling, attrition, missing data, and other sources of threats to statistical conclusion, construct, internal and external validity.

Here’s a glimpse of what we’re up to:

  1. AERA Conference Engagement: We foster vibrant discussions by supporting various presentation formats. Share your insights, spark conversations, and enrich our collective knowledge.
  2. Stay Informed: Keep an eye on our ASOND listserv and the ASOND Newsletter. We’ll alert you about upcoming large-scale dataset workshops and database releases. Stay ahead of the curve!
  3. Dissertation Excellence: We celebrate outstanding research! Our dissertation award competition recognizes recent Ph.D.s who’ve made significant strides in large-scale dataset research.
  4. Get Involved: Be an active part of our SIG. Serve as a proposal review panelist, session chair, discussant, newsletter or website editor, or even a SIG officer. Your contributions matter.

Remember, your membership matters. By joining us, you’re not just a member; you’re a catalyst for impactful research. Encourage colleagues and students to hop aboard—the more, the merrier! Our annual conference opportunities depend on our vibrant community.

Thank you for being part of the ASOND SIG. Let’s explore, learn, and make a difference together!
