Conferences are coming up; this year, the National Council on Measurement in Education (NCME) and American Educational Research Association (AERA) Annual Meetings are taking place in Chicago on April 12–15 and 13–16, respectively. The NAEP Research and Development team has been busy working on presentations and trainings for these conferences, and we’re excited to offer an opportunity to dive deeper into the EdSurvey and Dire R packages at NCME on Wednesday, March 28, with “Tools For Analyzing NAEP and TIMSS Data in R Using Latent Regression.” This session will be presented by Dr. Emmanuel Sikali, Acting Branch Chief for Reporting and Dissemination at the National Center for Education Statistics (NCES), and NAEP researchers from the American Institutes for Research (AIR).
