Greetings to all,
I am the Vice President of Research and Development for Assessment Technology Inc (ATI). I completed my graduate work in Psychology from the University of Arizona. I have an extensive background in research with an emphasis on applying empirical findings to practice where they can make a difference.
I have worked for ATI for the last 12 years. The main focus of this work has been the design and development of the Galileo system. Galileo is an online system designed to provide the data and the tools that will support educator's efforts to further children's achievement. This work has been informed in no small way by the contributions of both the research community and those who are "in the trenches" every day teaching.
The intent of these blogs is to further the communication between all of us who spend our days trying to make things better for children. I look forward to meeting you all.
