Aslihan Unal, Ph.D., associate professor in the Department of Elementary and Special Education, received the Georgia Educational Research Association (GERA) Distinguished Paper Award on Oct. 5. Hosted by the State and Regional Educational Research Associations (SRERA), this award selects a paper that reflects the high quality of research presented at state and regional conference. Unal’s paper, “An examination of K-12 Teachers’ Assessment Beliefs and Practices in Relation to Years of Teaching Experience,” compares data from 87 public school teachers and suggests that as teachers’ years of experience increases, the value they place in assessment increases as well. As a part of the award, Unal will receive a guaranteed slot at a session at a SRERA session during the 2019 Association of Educational Research Association (AERA) Meeting.
