Philosophy Statement:

My research focuses on three main areas of educational measurement. In the first I use multilevel modeling to examine predictors of item-level performance, such as time (item parameter drift), examinee grouping (differential item functioning), and other covariates (e.g., item type, opportunity to learn). In the second I work on problems in the development, scaling, and scoring of classroom assessments and progress monitoring measures, with the goal of improving score interpretation and decision-making at the student level. In the third, I explore methods for equating alternate test forms to a common measurement scale.
