Professor named to advisory committee
George Engelhard Jr., a professor in the College of Education's educational psychology department, has been named to the technical advisory committee for the Dynamic Learning Maps consortium.
This consortium, which is based at the University of Kansas, includes state departments of education and a team of test developers, researchers and educators who develop systems to assess students with significant cognitive disabilities. These systems create "road maps" that show specific knowledge and foundational skills that help support academics.
Engelhard teaches in the department's quantitative methods program, where he specializes in educational measurement and policy.
