Research

Her research interests are in assessment and evaluation, survey and instrument development and validation, universal design for teaching and learning, and classroom engagement, and measuring the effect accommodations have on self-regulation skills for students with learning disabilities and if parental involvement acts as a mediator between the child’s desire to attend college and the likelihood he or she will attend college.
