Wendy Chan was awarded $25,000 by the American Educational Research Association for the project “The Generalizability of Deeper Learning Using Small Area Estimation.” In an extension to the earlier Study of Deeper Learning by the American Institutes for Research, Dr. Chan will use hierarchical Bayesian models to estimate the generalized impact of the deeper learning approaches on the proportion of on-time graduation rates among high school students in California and New York. This study is the first to generalize the impacts of deeper learning and to apply small area estimation methods to generalization when the small areas are defined using a generalizability index.
