In 2014 the National Art Education Association Research Commission started a Mixed Methods Working Group to build an association level consensus on the need for rigor in art education research. 

Join with Mixed Methods Working Group members Raymond Veon, Amanda Krantz, and Read Diket to:
Discover how quantitative and mixed methods study addresses critical questions in engineering education that taps into creative and visual thinking.
Explore a museum project using a mixed methods approach and see how it was implemented nationwide.
Discuss the development of mixed methods research by a consortium of university researchers who participated in an extended study and secondary analyses of the National Assessments for Educational Progress in the Visual Arts.
