AERA NAEP SIG Webinar (December 15, 2021)

Analytic Tools to Explore NAEP Data

Are you interested in exploring NAEP data but not sure where to begin and what tools to use?  On December 15, 2021, the AERA NAEP Studies SIG held a webinar to discuss various tools such as the NAEP Data Explorer, a freely available online analysis tool that requires no programming skills, and the EdSurvey, an R statistical package designed specifically for NCES large-scale assessment data including NAEP.

Presenters Paul Bailey, Ting Zhang, and Alison Filbey, from the American Institutes for Research, provided a brief introduction to the various tools available to explore and analyze NAEP data and share resources for those who want to learn more. B. Jasmine Park, also from American Institutes for Research, moderated the webinar.  This webinar is an excellent opportunity for graduate students and researchers to learn how to better utilize NAEP data in their research.

AERA NAEP SIG Webinar (August 12, 2021)

New NCES EDGE Program and SIDE Study

On August 12, 2021, the AERA NAEP Studies SIG presented a webinar discussing the National Center for Education Statistics (NCES) Education Demographic and Geographic Estimates (EDGE) program and the spatially interpolated demographic and economic (SIDE) estimates study. The presentation focused on learning why demographic, geographic, and economic data are crucial in large-scale studies and how they can aid in examining various group differences in educational outcomes. Dr. William Ward and Dr. Douglas Geverdt of NCES discussed the purposes of the EDGE program, how the estimates are developed, and what it means for researchers who want to use the NAEP data and other NCES-sponsored data collection.

Panelists:
Moderator: Judy H. Tang, Westat
Presenter: Dr. William Ward, U.S. Department of Education, NCES
Presenter: Dr. Douglas Geverdt, U.S. Department of Education, NCES

There are two sets of slides from the presentation.  The first set of slides discussing the socioeconomic status (SES) measure, while the second set of sides focus on the EDGE program.

AERA NAEP SIG Webinar (January 12, 2021)

What Can Large-Scale Data Tell Us?  A Discussion on Student SES Measures Using the TIMSS and NAEP Data

On January 12, 2021, the AERA NAEP Studies SIG sponsored a webinar discussion on the student socioeconomic status (SES) measures. In this webinar, researchers presented results from two studies that analyzed changes in achievement gaps between low and high SES students over time. The first study used Trends in International Mathematics and Science Study (TIMSS) data and focused on country-level results, and the second study used National Assessment of Educational Progress (NAEP) and focused on U.S. state-level results. Researchers also discussed SES-related items from the NAEP student questionnaire data and how student-level neighborhood SES resources may provide additional perspectives on the SES measures.

Panelists:

  • Ning Rui, Amazon, Moderator
  • Markus Broer, AIR, Presenter
  • Yifan Bai, AIR, Presenter
  • Judy Tang, Westat, Presenter
  • William Ward, US Department of Education - NCES, Discussant
