Data Connections Conference Materials


Data Connections held a conference April 24-25, 2014, in Lincoln, Nebraska, and shared findings related to using value-added models to characterize the impact of teacher professional development on K-8 student mathematics achievement. The conference featured plenary presentations both by the Data Connections team and nationally-recognized statisticians and psychometricians--Dr. Mark Reckase and Dr. Sharon Lohr. The conference also had concurrent break-out sessions and workshop time to explore key questions related to modeling teacher and student data, from the perspectives of statisticians and psychometricians, school district personnel, and other educational researchers.
