Evaluating an Enhanced Curriculum for Improving Children’s Self-Regulation

Our team will be evaluating the newly updated High/Scope curriculum with preschoolers in Detroit to help us understand how the curriculum might support children to develop self-regulation skills. We will also collect teacher and parent data.

The Early Literacy and Language Investigations (ELLI) lab is looking for Research Assistants to be trained to conduct a variety of assessments with 4-5 year olds and complete other research duties in our lab. Research assistants will (1) receive training in and conduct assessments with young children, (2) assist with data entry, data scoring, and analysis, (3) learn about exciting research in child development through literature review, and (4) have the opportunity to use data for their own research projects.
