"Rebecca Coven ’13 and I presented our research on the relats. During the 2012 QAC Summer Apprenticeship program, Rebecca Coven ’13 and I worked with Professor Daniel Long in the Sociology department researching the effect of math and reading instructional time on both student achievement scores and the gains in achievement over time. At the end of the summer, we submitted our findings to the American Education Research Association (AERA) and were selected to present at the 2013 AERA Annual Meeting in San Francisco. AERA is a national association focused on education research, and the conference draws many of the most prominent researchers in the field of education. Attending this conference was a great experience both because we were able to present our research and because we were able to listen to some of the most influential people in educational research and policy. One of highlights of the conference for me was meeting a professor from UC Irvine’s School of Education and talking to him about my career goals and potential ideas for my senior essay. Rebecca and I are grateful to have had the opportunity to work with Professor Long and Manolis in the QAC Apprenticeship and to present our research at AERA." -Shivani Kochhar '12
