This month, the Research Alliance will participate in the Association for Public Policy Analysis & Management’s (APPAM) 40th Annual Fall Research Conference.

Research Alliance Executive Director Dr. James Kemple, Dr. Rebecca Unterman of MDRC, and Dr. Shaun Dougherty of Vanderbilt University will present early insights from our research on career and technical education (CTE) in New York City. Their panel, “Emerging Causal Evidence on Career and Technical Education Program Impacts and Measuring the Factors that Support Their Effectiveness,” will explore data that is available to assess the implementation of various CTE programs and highlight strategies and challenges around the integration of impact and implementation research.

In addition, IES-PIRT Fellow Kristin Black will participate in a symposium entitled, “Measures of SES for Program Planning and Research: Findings from a Research-Practice Partnership in New York City.” She will join co-authors Judy Lorimer of Goddard Riverside Options Center and Sarah Truelsch, Edward Rubio, and Kerstin Gentsch of CUNY’s Office of Institutional Research in presenting their paper, Measuring Neighborhood and Individual Poverty: A Study of College Going in New York City. This paper builds on work from the NYC Partnership for College Readiness and Success.

APAAM will be held November 8-10 in Washington, D.C.
