NAEP Process Data Researcher Dr. Ruhan Circi will present on Friday, November 18, 2022, at the Association for Public Policy Analysis & Management (APPAM) 2022 Fall Conference being held in Washington, DC.
APPAM is an organization focused on improving public policy through the promotion of research, analysis, and education. Per the APPAM website, “The 2022 APPAM Fall Research Conference will highlight policy research that engages multidisciplinary perspectives and will aim to identify facilitators and barriers to effective cross-disciplinary collaboration for increasing the impact of policy research.”
In her presentation, Dr. Circi of the Center for Process Data will discuss a paper that she co-authored, “Using NLP-Based Methods with Process Data to Explore Student Accessibility Feature Use Behavior in Mathematics,” as part of a panel on “Methods and Application of Natural Language Analysis of Text Data.” According to the paper’s abstract, “There is limited research using NLP-based approaches to examine student behavior, but to our knowledge, no studies are focusing on students with disabilities.” The study featured in Dr. Circi’s presentation shows the applicability of natural language processing (NLP) methods to analyzing action patterns for accessibility feature use across disability types.
The conference will be held on November 17–19, 2022. This session will be held on Friday, November 18, from 8:30 to 10:00 a.m. ET. You can view an agenda for the event here and see more details on the panel including Dr. Circi’s presentation here.
