My research interests involve developing effective instructional
practices and assessment tools for academically diverse learners, including students at-risk, students with disabilities, and students from culturally and linguistically diverse backgrounds. I am particularly interested in literacy instruction, assessment, and scaling up best practices for effective implementation and sustainability in classrooms.

I have used Curriculum-Based Measurement (CBM) in my research examining approaches to identifying and treating nonresponders to evidence-based intervention. I am currently examining the technical adequacy and utility of CBM oral reading and maze measures in monitoring the progress of secondary-level English Language Learners. I am also working with my RIPM colleagues to develop a seamless and flexible progress monitoring system in reading and written expression.
