Topics at the annual meeting will include roundtable idea sessions, Bayesian Estimation and Propensity Score Analysis in Educational Statistics, Problem Solving in Complex Settings, Public Scholarship on Racialized Opportunities and Experiences in Higher Education, and more.

The 2016 edition of AERA’s annual meeting will celebrate the society’s centennial, illuminating the role of education researchers as public scholars who “contribute to public understanding, political debate, and professional practice” in diversifying democracies at home and abroad.
