Laine Bradshaw, an assistant professor in the College of Education’s educational psychology department, received the Jason Millman Measurement Scholar Award from the National Council on Measurement in Education.
The award recognizes contributions to the field of applied measurement. It is given to scholars within five years of receiving a doctoral degree.
Bradshaw, who teaches in the college’s quantitative methodology program, specializes in an emerging field of statistical models that add diagnostic feedback for teachers following a student’s assessment. The idea, Bradshaw said, is to give teachers information on student strengths and weaknesses within a certain subject, rather than one overall test score.
