WERA Board Goals 2021 - 2022

WERA will identify and provide professional learning opportunities and forums for discussion for those who engage in educational research, evaluation, assessment, instruction, policy, and related activities in the following ways:

  • Provide access to both national and state specific relevant education research and information (WERA Journal, Standard Deviation, Hot Topic webinars, and other virtual learning engagements). 

    • Create opportunities to make sense of the relevant education research and information
    • Elevate current issues in education research and policy that have contributed to inequities in the field 
    • Ensure that relevant education research and information is discussed with a lens toward implementation
  • Create opportunities for educational issues and policies to be considered from multiple perspectives (e.g., practitioners, administrators, researchers).

    • Invite legislative representatives, systems leaders, practitioners, and community stakeholders to engage in these discussions

  • Engage the field in continuous improvement through the use of evidence.

    • Understand findings with regard to the demographics: who benefits, from what, under what conditions? 
    • Provide opportunities to support data literacy to guide data driven decision making
