Hello Educational Statisticians (EdStats) SIG members!

It's feeling like summer and that means it's time to prepare our proposals for the 2023 Annual Meeting per the 2023 AERA call for papers.  Last year we had three sessions and were able to accept many of the strong proposals that were submitted.

As was true last year, the SIG will sponsor the Best Graduate Student Paper Award. We encourage our graduate-student members to submit their proposals as first or sole author to the Educational Statisticians SIG.  Students must be members of the EdStats SIG to qualify for the award, so that is motivation to join the SIG via the AERA SIG memberships page!

We will provide more details about the award criteria shortly.  Please do not hesitate to reach out to me at bbecker@fsu.edu if you have any questions about proposals or the award.

Best regards,

Betsy Becker, Program Chair, Educational Statisticians SIG
