Graduate Student Success Story:

Elizabeth Lee the Recipient of Brown Graduate Fellowship

Elizabeth Lee is a Ph.D. student in the Applied Linguistics and Technology program at Iowa State University (ISU). She was recently awarded the 2018-2019 Brown Fellowship Award, an award granted to deserving recipients aiming to enhance their research in their disciplinary area. With the funding, Elizabeth will devote much of her time to evaluating a diagnostic reading test given to non-native English speakers at ISU. Her project addresses a substantial missed opportunity in ESL reading assessment and pedagogy. Her research will reinforce the strength of using mixed methods to evaluate the validity of local language assessments and will also set an example for conducting systemic functional linguistic analysis in the realm of language assessment and evaluation. Elizabeth would like to extend a huge thanks to the CCE, and especially the CCE Graduate Peer Mentor Mitch, for helping her create a compelling fellowship application.
