EQR Hub Event - Propensity Score Analysis and Estimation


Reminder: the Evidence Quality and Reach Hub (EQR) is offering a free, four-part virtual community of practice to build current and aspiring DRK- 12 grantees understanding of when and how to use propensity score analysis (PSA).

As part of the experience, experts in PSA will share approaches and resources to help participants evaluating educational interventions when students are not randomized to an intervention. Participants will learn how to use PSA to create comparable comparison groups in order to understand the impact of an intervention. Participants will also practice applying what they have learned using a synthetic data set or their own data set between sessions. 

We welcome DRK-12 current and aspiring grantees (K-12 STEM education researchers and developers) from minority serving institutions (MSI). Our preference is that participants have at least a basic understanding of R or Stata and some experience with research/evaluation. All career levels and those with limited knowledge about PSA are welcome to participate, as well as other education researchers or developers. 

The community of practice will be held on August 13, 20, 27 and September 10 from 3:00-4:00pm EST. A session will not be held on September 3.

We welcome you to share the registration links with your professional networks, especially all current and aspiring National Science Foundation DRK-12 grantees.
