The presentation is centered on discussing state-of-the-art research methods to a wide audience. The schedule for this year is given below. Attendance is free but space is limited, so register early to secure your spot!

The symposium is FREE to all attendees. Registration closes on October 13th, 2017.

Featured Speakers:
Rob Horner
Dr. Rob Horner is professor of special education at the University of Oregon. His research has focused on behavior analysis, positive behavior support, multi-tiered instructional systems, equity in education, and systems change. He has worked for the past 20 years with George Sugai in development and implementation of school-wide positive behavioral interventions and supports (PBIS). Over 23,000 schools are implementing PBIS nationally. Research, evaluation and technical assistance outcomes from this effort indicate that investing in the development of a positive social culture is associated with improved behavioral and academic gains for students. Dr. Horner has been the editor of the Journal of the Association for Persons with Severe Handicaps, co-editor of the Journal of Positive Behavior Interventions, and associate editor for both the Journal of Applied Behavior Analysis and the American Journal on Mental Retardation.

David Rinksopf
Dr. David Rindskopf is Distinguished Professor of Educational Psychology and Psychology at the City University of New York Graduate School. He is a Fellow of the American Statistical Association and the American Educational Research Association, Past President of the Society for Multivariate Experimental Psychology, and past Editor of the Journal of Educational and Behavioral Statistics. His research interests are categorical data, latent variable models, and multilevel models. Current projects include (i) showing how people subconsciously use complex statistical methods to make decisions in everyday life, (ii) introducing floor and ceiling effects into logistic regression to model response probabilities constrained to a limited range, (iii) using multilevel models to analyze data from single case designs.
