Experts from the American Institutes for Research (AIR) will present at several sessions during the 2022 Society for Research on Educational Effectiveness (SREE) conference. The conference will be held September 21-24, 2022, at the Renaissance Arlington Capitol View Hotel in Arlington, Virginia.
Built around the theme “From Reckoning to Racial Justice: Centering Underserved Communities in Research on Educational Effectiveness,” the conference will bring together education researchers, policy leaders, and professionals from around the country. AIR experts will present their work in several sessions across a variety of topics, including research methods, strategies to support the success of education leaders of color, early childhood education, postsecondary education, academic learning, school staffing challenges, and more. AIR is also a 2022 Institutional Member and Platinum Sponsor and will have a booth available in the Exhibitor Hall for those wanting to learn more about its research and career opportunities.
On Friday, September 23, the work of five AIR experts will be recognized at an awards ceremony. AIR’s Mengli Song, Andrew J. Wayne, Michael S. Garet, Seth Brown, and Jordan Rickles will be recognized with the 2021 JREE Outstanding Article award for their article, Impact of Providing Teachers and Principals with Performance Feedback on Their Practice and Student Achievement: Evidence from a Large-Scale, Randomized Experiment. The criteria for the award is a paper that provides a model example of a rigorous evaluation of an educational innovation; a particularly important methodological advance; or a thorough and impactful review of theory, contexts, or mechanisms of educational processes.
