Allan Cohen and Seock-Ho Kim, Outstanding Example of Education Measurement Technology

College of Education professors Allan Cohen, director of the Georgia Center for Assessment, and Seock-Ho Kim, a professor in the department of educational psychology and instructional technology, were part of a team that received the 2011 award for an Outstanding Example of an Application of Educational Measurement Technology to a Specific Problem from the National Council on Measurement in Education.

The award was for the development of a statistical method for measuring the growth of students’ problem-solving skills in mathematics. This new method enables researchers to simultaneously measure both the different ways that students can reason about individual questions on a mathematics test and their overall growth in mathematics ability.

The award was presented to Cohen and his group at the NCME’s annual conference in April in New Orleans.
