Post-Doctoral Research Fellow, University of Oregon
Daniel Anderson earned his PhD in March of 2015 from the University of Oregon, department of Educational Methodology, Policy and Leadership. He earned his M.S. from the same department in July of 2009 and his B.S. in Elementary Education from Utah State University in May of 2007. Daniel’s dissertation focused on parsing variance in students’ within-year mathematics growth between students, classrooms, and schools, using a Bayesian estimator with moderately informative priors.
Daniel’s research is focused in three primary areas:
1. Advanced statistical methodologies;
2. Applied educational measurement problems, specifically those related to scaling; and
3. Using school- or district-wide data to drive educational decisions/reform efforts.
