Assistant: Elayne Weissler-Martello

Biography

His current work focuses on the design of assessments and assessment systems that measure college students learning, both their development of competence/ achievement and so-called “soft-skills” such as perspective taking. He co-created the Collegiate Learning Assessment with Steve Klein and built statistical models for estimating value added for the CLA and other college-level assessments. This work is summarized in Measuring College Student Learning: Accountability in a New Era (2010, Stanford University Press) and in recent papers on the measurement and statistical modeling of competence.
