ERM M.S./Ph.D. student Jonathan Rollins was recently awarded a year-long paid internship with the Winston-Salem/Forsyth County Schools (WS/FCS), a neighboring school district to UNCG and Greensboro. In this role, Rollins will be assisting the Research and Evaluation Division of WSFCS on issues pertaining to the design, data collection, and statistical analyses of studies conducted to evaluate a range of programs intended to improve student outcomes. Through this internship Rollins will be gaining invaluable hands-on experience working with real data that have important implications for data-driven decisions made by the school district. This internship also provides him with an opportunity to apply many of the analytic techniques he has learned in ERM coursework to practical real-world situations. Rollins, who is entering his third year in the M.S./Ph.D. program in ERM, will serve in this role on a part-time basis over the next year as he continues to complete his doctoral degree requirements.
