Casey Archer

Research Intern

As a Graduate Intern from the University of Maryland, Casey aims to apply all that he has learned about education policy and research methods. He is entering his fourth year as a PhD student in Education Policy and Leadership, and he specifically focuses on using quantitative research methods when assessing policy decisions. His passions include working towards equitable educational opportunities for K-12 kids from all backgrounds and studying the ways that social networks can enrich and expand educational outcomes for students, teachers, and schools.

Casey continues to work as a Research Assistant at UMD for two projects. He currently is the Data Analyst of Project LEARN, a longitudinal study that aims to understand the differential factors that predict growth in reading comprehension between English Learners and English Monolinguals. He also works with his academic advisor to quantify and understand teacher effects on various student outcomes. In 2017, Casey worked as an intern at the federal Education Department in the National Initiatives Team.

Casey always has a novel nearby, so in his free time he races to meet his Goodreads reading goals or to complete one of the books for his various book clubs. He considers himself a reality TV expert, and he relishes the opportunity to talk about the latest elimination on Survivor or Big Brother (or any other obscure reality competition show). He almost exclusively follows corgi accounts on social media.
