About the Project
This project seeks to develop, apply, and disseminate a Bayesian alternative to the frequentist (classical) statistical paradigm as used in rigorous empirical research in the education sciences. With recent advances in Bayesian computation have come important applications of Bayesian methods to problems in the social and behavioral sciences. However, few applications of Bayesian methods to education problems can be found. This project investigates Bayesian approaches to three types of education research designs: randomized experiments, quasi-experiments, and observational studies. This project has been funded by the Institute for Education Sciences under grant # R305D110001.
