Corrected: We inadvertently omitted the chairperson of the What Works Clearinghouse’s Technical Advisory Group. He is Larry V. Hedges, the Stella M. Rowley professor of education, psychology, public policy studies, and sociology, University of Chicago, Chicago, Ill. In addition, Betsy Jane Becker’s current position was erroneously listed. She is a professor of measurement and quantitative methods, Michigan State University, East Lansing, Mich.
