PIAAC Data Analysis Workshop: Applications Are Now Being Accepted

With support from the Institute of Education Sciences (IES), the Educational Testing Service (ETS) is offering a 3-day workshop for researchers interested in learning how to analyze data from the Program for the International Assessment of Adult Competencies (PIAAC).

Dates: July 30 – August 1, 2018

Location: The University of Maryland, College Park Campus
Application due date: May 31, 2018

The training session is free, and accepted participants who are U.S. citizens or U.S. permanent residents will be reimbursed for food and lodging costs.

In this workshop, participants will learn about the structure and content of the PIAAC as well as free online tools for analyzing the data and will have opportunities for hands-on research.

Workshop applicants should have an interest in using the PIAAC for policy-related research and should be practicing researchers with a master’s or doctorate degree or be enrolled in a doctoral program. Applicants may apply individually or as part of a team of researchers.

Researchers and advanced graduate students from Minority Serving Institutions are highly encouraged to apply.
