Former student honored for work in educational measurement
A recent graduate student at the College of Education has been recognized for her work in the field of educational measurement.
Youn-Jeng Choi, who received her doctorate in educational psychology last fall, is a co-recipient of the 2016 Brenda Loyd Dissertation Award given by the National Council on Measurement in Education. The honor reflects the work and dissertation she produced while at the University of Georgia.
As part of the award, Choi will split a check for $1,000 and also receive a plaque. The award will be given out during the organization's breakfast and business meeting this spring in Washington, D.C., to which she is invited. The breakfast is part of NCME's annual conference.
Choi graduated in 2014 with a specialization in quantitative methodology, and is now an assistant professor at the University of Alabama. Following her graduation, she completed postdoctoral research fellow at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, where she was part of an educational research group in the school's physics department.
