New Directions for Evaluation Editor

Paul Brandon began a three-year term as editor-in-chief of New Directions for Evaluation. The quarterly thematic journal, which publishes empirical, methodological, and theoretical works on all aspects of evaluation, is one of two official journals of the American Evaluation Association (http://www.eval.org/p/cm/ld/fid=47). The journal focuses on evaluation theory, methods, practice, and professional issues, often contextualized in substantive areas such as government performance, energy, environment, health, and education. It offers evaluators, program administrators, institutional researchers, consultants, and others in-depth information about concepts, techniques, and procedures for conducting evaluations, with a focus on new developments or the compilation of recent developments. All issues are guest-edited; Brandon’s responsibility is to solicit guest editors, vet proposals, coordinate reviews by panels of rotating members of the Editorial Advisory Board, and administer the process of submitting full issues to the publisher. During his tenure as editor-in-chief, Brandon plans to expand the breadth of topics that the journal covers by focusing on new aspects of evaluation, particularly international topics.

The team of Jordan Wang and Brittany Supnet were selected as the University of Hawai‘i at Manoa’s Student Employee of the Year for their work with CRDG’s Teaching Science as Inquiry (TSI) Aquatic program.

wang-supnet_optWang, a 2012 UH Manoa Presidential Scholarship recipient, has worked for CRDG since 2010. Supnet joined the group over a year ago.  ey are responsible for ordering and organizing the supplies for the TSI Aquatic program, which has facilitated more than thirty science teacher professional development workshops for  ve cohorts of teachers across the state of Hawai‘i over the past two years. Additionally, Wang and Supnet manage  scal paperwork and procedures, assist with the writing and distribution of TSI Aquatic workshop contracts, and serve as liaisons between the project and participating schools. As a result of their quality work and collaboration, they have played an increasingly important role in curriculum and research aspects of the program. “ e members of the entire TSI Aquatic team are continually impressed with Jordan and Brittany’s reliability, independence, and leadership,” said TSI Aquatic Program Manager Joanna Philippo . “We would not be as successful, e    cient, or organized without their hard work, dedication, and valuable contributions.”

2013 HERA Winner Presents at AERA

Venenciano_optCRDG researcher and UH Mānoa College of Education Assistant Professor Linda Venenciano won the Hawai‘i Educational Research Association’s (HERA) 2013 Distinguished Paper Award for her paper “Developing a Statistical Model to Analyze Algebra Preparedness.” The award included an invitation to present at the American Educational Research Association (AERA) conference in San Francisco on April 30, 2013. The award-winning paper was an extension of Venenciano’s research at CRDG with the Measure Up mathematics project and Davydov’s theory of developmental instruction.

Fulton Wins Outstanding Doctoral Research Award

Fulton_optLori Fulton was selected for the 2013 National Association for Research in Science Teaching (NARST) Outstanding Doctoral Research Award for her dissertation, Writing in Science: Influences of Professional Development on Teachers’ Beliefs, Practices, and Student Performance. “This is a great honor, as Dr. Fulton’s doctoral dissertation has been judged by her colleagues in NARST to have great significance in the field of science education,” CRDG Director Kathleen Berg said. NARST is a worldwide organization that has worked to improve science teaching and learning through research since 1928. In its effort to help all learners achieve science literacy, the association encourages and supports the application of diverse research methods and theoretical perspectives from multiple disciplines to the investigation of teaching and learning in science; communicates science education research findings to researchers, practitioners, and policy makers; and cooperates with other educational and scientific societies to influence educational policies.
