DEADLINE Extended: on Call for proposals on the use of qualitative research to determine program qualityJune 4th, 2010
The July 15, 2010, deadline for submitting proposals to the AERA SIG has been extended to July 22, 2010. Please submit proposals to www.aera.net.
The AERA Academic Audit Research Special Interest Group announces a call for papers around the theme of “Using Qualitative Methods for Program Assessment.” Of particular interest is research relating to the use of qualitative methods to determine how well a program is meeting its goals.
Collecting and reporting qualitative evidence can be cumbersome or inconsistent, and the evidence itself may be difficult to interpret. Papers that explore attempts to address these and other challenges, or that evaluate the usefulness of qualitative methods for program assessment, are encouraged.
Submit a proposal to the SIG through the AERA website (www.aera.net) by JULY 15, 2010 at 11:59 pm Pacific time.
