Student working on a research project.

Research Assistant Position

We are seeking undergraduate research assistants for a study examining the effects of performance feedback on elementary-aged students' academic skills. During the Fall 2015 semester, research assistants will receive training in conducting the study procedures and gain experience with data entry, data scoring, and study preparation. During the Spring 2016 semester, in addition to the aforementioned duties, research assistants will assist with data collection in local schools with elementary-aged students. The research assistant position will be on a volunteer-only basis in the Fall, but academic credits will be available in the Spring.

Interested undergraduates may apply for the Fall and/or Spring semester; for Spring semester applicants, preference will be given to those who also participated in the Fall.

The application can be completed using the following link:
