Terri Pigott, a professor with a joint appointment in the Georgia State University School of Public Health and College of Education & Human Development, was one of 24 faculty members nationwide selected as a 2023 American Educational Research Association Fellow.
The AERA Fellows Program honors scholars for their exceptional contributions to, and excellence in, education research. Nominated by their peers, the 2023 Fellows were selected by the Fellows Committee and approved by the AERA Council, the association’s elected governing body. Pigott will be among the 2023 AERA Fellows inducted during a ceremony at the organization’s Annual Meeting in Chicago on April 14. She joins a total of 714 AERA Fellows.
“AERA Fellows demonstrate the highest standards of excellence, and we are pleased to welcome this year’s class,” said AERA Executive Director Felice J. Levine. “The 2023 AERA Fellows join a prestigious group of exceptional scholars and deserve this honor because of their significant contributions to the field.”
Pigott’s research focuses on methods for meta-analysis, including power, missing data and individual participant meta-analysis. Her work has appeared in Review of Educational Research, Research Synthesis Methods and Educational Researcher. She is the founding chair of the AERA Special Interest Group for Systematic Review and Meta-Analysis. In 2016, she was awarded the Frederick Mosteller Award from the Campbell Collaboration for Distinctive Contributions for Systematic Reviewing.
