International EDI Data Workshop for Perú researchers

In the last week of February the EDI team hosted an International EDI Data Workshop for Rosina Vanessa Sánchez Jiménez and Luis Eduardo Ferrer Cruz, two researchers from the Ministerio de Educación del Perú.

The pair of researchers travelled to Hamilton, Ontario to meet with members of the McMaster faculty and the EDI statistical team to familiarize themselves with the EDI data, learn appropriate analytic methods, and engage in hands-on sessions for creating detailed reports. The workshop was quite timely as Perú conducted the National Assessment of Early Education in 2014, a baseline measure of early child development that utilized the EDI to collect data on over 16,000 children.
