I am currently an Associate Professor and Director of the EdD Program in Leadership & Innovation at Arizona State University.  I have been an educator for 31 years, 21 of those in higher education, and 6 as an administrator. I teach courses focused on the application of action research to promote educator empowerment, school improvement, and job-embedded professional development, and also teach research methods, statistical analyses, and educational assessment methods. I have served as the research methodology expert on more than 100 doctoral dissertations and Masters theses.

I am the author of 22 books, 8 invited book chapters, and 20 refereed journal articles. I have presented more than 40 research papers at professional meetings, and have consulted with numerous schools, districts, and universities on classroom-based action research and on the broad topic of classroom assessment.
