In addition to collaborating with educators on using assessment data to improve student learning, I focus on improving the technical quality and utility of our measuring instruments. I do this by assisting agencies with established assessment development processes and serve as a Quality Assurance agent—ensuring the accuracy of data management routines and psychometric analyses. I also conduct assessment development research; my research interests focus on the intersection of cognition and assessment.
I believe the UGA online program provides students with the perfect balance of theory and application. The faculty and students all bring unique experiences and a collaborative spirit into the virtual classroom—I am honored to be a part of the UGA online instructional community.
