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.

The developers of the U.S. Department of Education’s What Works Clearinghouse last week named the 14 experts who sit on its technical advisory group.

They include:

Betsy Jane Becker and Jesse A. Berlin, professors of bistatistics, University of Pennsylvania School of Medicine, Philadelphia; Douglas Carnine, professor of education, University of Oregon, Eugene; Thomas D. Cook, professor of sociology, psychology, education, and social policy, Northwestern University, Evanston, Ill.; David J. Francis, professor of quantitative methods, University of Houston; Edward H. Haertel, professor of education, Stanford University, Palo Alto, Calif.

Robert L. Linn, professor of education, University of Colorado at Boulder; Mark W. Lipsey, senior research associate, Vanderbilt Institute for Public Policy Studies, Nashville, Tenn.; David Myers, senior fellow, Mathematica Policy Research, Washington; Andrew C. Porter, professor of educational policy, University of Wisconsin- Madison; David Rindskopf, professor of psychology and educational psychology, City University of New York Graduate Center, New York City; Cecilia E.
