NAEP Process Data Researcher Goes International to Explore Academic Resilience

NAEP Process Data Researcher Goes International to Explore Academic Resilience

NAEP Researcher Dr. Juanita Hicks was recently invited to Norway to present NAEP process data at a workshop on Academic Resilience (AR) along with others from the international research community. The workshop, which is the first in a series, is part of a grant awarded to Dr. Nani Teig, associate professor at the University of Oslo, Norway through the Centre for Advanced Studies Fellowship Program.

This Fellowship grant, which will span about two and a half years, joins together researchers from three fields: 1) Academic Resilience, 2) large-scale assessment, and 3) Process Data. The purpose of the workshops will be to expand research on academic resilience to better measure student success by combining traditional measures of student performance with process data. Over the course of this first four-day workshop, Dr. Hicks participated in presentations and discussions using process data to investigate different types of academic resilience that may be observed in student behavior. She brought her methodological knowledge in sequence and process mining as well as her expertise in NAEP data to help inform what process data features or variables would be useful for measuring academic performance, such as tool use, timing behaviors, and informative student-centered events (clicking a multiple-choice response versus scrolling, which is not as informative).     

The invitation to this international workshop speaks both to how NAEP continues to represent the “gold standard” for assessment around the world and how its process data product is building on this reputation through the expertise of its process data researchers, including those like Dr. Hicks and Dr. Ruhan Circi from the Center for Process Data. NAEP process data researchers are sought out globally for their expert guidance on the utility and inclusion of important process data information (e.g., features and raw data).

Stay connected with the NAEP R&D program to see how NAEP and the Center for Process Data will continue to collaborate internationally to provide a voice for innovative research topics in process data.
