Outstanding Paper Award
Each year, CERA honors one of its members with the Outstanding Paper Award. Authors of original, unpublished articles contributing to the field of educational research, program evaluation, assessment, accountability, or related topics are invited to submit their papers for consideration for the CERA’s Outstanding Paper Award. The recipient of the CERA Outstanding Paper Award receives paid conference registration to both CERA’s Annual Conference and to the American Educational Research Association’s (AERA) Annual Meeting where he or she will represent CERA. Individuals must be a member of CERA and have their abstract accepted for the CERA Annual Conference in order to apply for the Outstanding Paper Award.
