SIG Chair

Hi everyone!

I am happy to serve as chair of the Educational Statisticians (EdStats) SIG for 2022-2023, in which I hope to help and support members of the SIG. I would also like to thank the previous chair, Ariel Aloe (University of Iowa), who expended a lot of effort in the last couple years to keep this SIG going. The other former SIG officers were also a key part of that effort, and I greatly appreciated working with each of them. We are hoping to start some initiatives to provide a community and best serve our members. We will let you know about our upcoming plans soon. In the meantime, we have worked to update our AERA EdStats SIG website.

Summer is here, and so that means AERA proposals are due soon. I hope you consider submitting your proposal to the EdStats SIG, and do not hesitate to reach out to myself ( or our program chair, Betsy Becker (, if you have any questions. We are planning to give out the Graduate Student Best Paper Award this year, and it was a wonderful to award Corissa Rohloff (University of Minnesota) as our 2021-2022 winner. We are also accepting nominations for the Annual Service Award, so if you would like to nominate someone for this award, please email me a nomination letter and a copy of the candidate’s vita.
