Hello and Welcome to the Town Hall Blog

I’m John Bergan, President of Assessment Technology Incorporated. John, whom you have already met, is also John Bergan. I’m John Richard and he is John Robert. To keep life simple, I go by Jack. My degrees are all from Michigan schools. I received a Bachelor of Arts degree from Kalamazoo College, a Master of Arts from Wayne State University, and a Ph.D. from the University of Michigan. Following graduation, I pursued an academic career. I started my career at Kansas University and then moved to the University of Arizona, where I was a Professor of Educational Psychology for many years. My research interests include measurement, learning, development, and cognition.

In 1986 I had the good fortune to be able to found our company, Assessment Technology Incorporated. The mission of the company is to create technology to promote learning. The guiding force supporting this mission is a continuing learning-focused program of research and technology development. As John has indicated, we decided to introduce blogs to further communication regarding issues affecting learning in our rapidly changing world. We look forward to hearing from you and sharing ideas with you in these exciting and challenging times.

I really enjoy using this assesment because it allows me to chart growth with my children. I work at Headstart Preschool and have a Ph.D. in Early Childhood Education
