The University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign Postdoctoral Research Training Program in Mathematics Education provides training for fellows interested in mathematics learning, mathematical measurement, and in developing expertise in quasi-experimental and experimental design and analysis of large-scale evaluations. Through this program, fellows have the opportunity to work with faculty on funded research studies as their core training experience. Current research studies include large-scale evaluation of mathematics instruction; exploration of the practices, and programs, or malleable factors associated with better outcomes for diverse student populations; development of new mathematics interventions and professional development models; and development and validation of mathematical measurement tools. The program also offers additional training experiences including auditing courses, regular faculty mentoring sessions, research seminars, and individualized assistance in writing articles and grant proposals.
