UW-BHS Research Project Workshops

Since the inception of the UW-BHS Research Project, two workshops have been held that focus primarily on resesarch using the UW-BHS data.

2003 UW-BHS Workshop

The first workshop was held in August of 2003 at the University of Washington. Social science researchers from the University of Washington, researchers and faculty from universities across the US, local school administrators, staff of the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, and staff from the College Success Foundation all attended the conference. Many of the talks at this conference used data from the UW-BHS and the Texas Top 10% Project to evaluate the predictors of educational success.

2007 UW-BHS Workshop

The second UW-BHS conference was held in October 2007. Again, researchers from the University of Washington, staff from the Office of the Superintendent of Public Instruction, local high school and community college school administrators, staff of the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, and staff from the College Success Foundation all attended the conference.
