The Postdoctoral Research Training Program in Education Sciences provided interdisciplinary training in methods for education research, including statistical methods, measurement methods, evaluation methods, and research design to seven fellows. Fellows in this program worked in one of many projects that exposed them to designs relevant to large-scale randomized experiments, meta-analyses, and exploration of factors effecting academic achievement and the development of language, mathematical, and spatial skills. Fellows also presented and published papers, wrote grant proposals, and produced a career development plan.
