Research Interests

My current research focusses on the evaluation of educational programs' performance against professional standards or other desirable outcomes. In particular, I am interested in evidencing and evaluating the acquisition of knowledge and skills as well as desirable attitudes in the professions. I use a range of evaluation and research methods, but I have specific interest in psychometrics using a combination of methods, including Classical Test and Item Response Theories.
