Join the Qualitative Methods Group and presenters Andrew Estrada Phuong, Judy Nguyen, and Dena Marie as they discuss applying mixed-methods within randomized control trials to study adaptive equity-oriented pedagogies. 
Presenters will discuss their experience with an ongoing mixed-methods study which currently suggests that, compared to control conditions, students learning through AEP, on average, scored over a full letter grade higher on final assessments and in the courses being studied. These students also demonstrated greater improvements in positive psychosocial outcomes (e.g., motivation, reduced stereotype threat, growth mindset, self-efficacy, sense of belonging) when controlling for GPA and intersectional identities (e.g., race, gender, sexual orientation, income, disability, immigration status).

The presenters will introduce their unique methodology and review their methodological decision-making process. The bulk of the time will be used to engage in an extensive Q&A focused on learning about mixed-methods research through their extensive experience. Everyone with an interest in mixed-methods and/or qualitative research, regardless of previous education and experience, are invited and welcomed.
Andrew Estrada Phuong is a PhD student at UC Berkeley's Graduate School of Education, Judy Nguyen is a PhD student at Stanford University's Graduate School of Education, and Dena Marie is a PhD candidate in Hispanic Languages and Literature at UC Berkeley. Since 2010, they have engaged mixed-methods research to study how adaptive equity-oriented pedagogies (AEP) have improved over 3000 students’ success in humanities, STEM, and social sciences courses.
