Notably, at the AERA Division D In-Progress Research Gala, REMP doctoral student Tia Sukin was award first prize for her poster, entitled The Effect of Deleting Anchor Items on the Classification of Examinees: An Exploration of Item Flagging Criteria and Anchor Item Properties. Fifty graduate students from universities across the United States and Canada were selected to participate in the Gala, and Tia's research proposal was rated highest by three raters.
