Shawn's primary research interests include:
Issues around educational measurement, methodology, and assessment—specifically, exploring how students’ status and growth in reading, math and science achievement relate to teacher instructional decision-making and professional development needs within the context of school-wide improvement initiatives (e.g., RTI).
Currently, his focus is on developing and improving interim-formative and high stakes (e.g., statewide school entry and accountability, including alternate assessment) systems.
