Claudio Sanchez says "HLM"

Todays' the day that NPR education reporter Claudio Sanchez said hierarchical linear modeling on air. This story was really about the public brouhaha over the did-she-or-didn't-she-downplay-the-study controversy on the public/private analysis of NAEP, but it's nice for the phrase to be out in public. Maybe this means that Sanchez will report on Jenny D.'s dissertation? Maybe we'll have comic books with Harvey Goldstein as multilevel superhero, meta-methodological wrestling matches between Larry Hedges and Robert Slavin, or poetry slams about evaluation perspectives with Michael Scriven, Michael Q. Patton, and Patricia J. Rogers.

Probably not, but one can hope, right?

But since Claudio Sanchez came out of the closet as a multilevel-modeling fanboy, I need to get cracking on the section of chapter 2 that covers growth models.

And, yes, I did look after my wonderful 11- and 14-year-old offspring while Elizabeth was at work today. Why do you ask?
