The CALM team studies assessment, learning and motivation. In the area of classroom assessment we have identified best practices in test construction, innovations in assessment as learning, and the practices by which teachers with expertise in classroom assessment engage in assessment cycles and use data to inform instruction. Team members have also explored learning through unique instructional strategies including problem based learning and persuasive pedagogy. These approaches to instruction are rooted in constructivist and developmental approaches to learning. Finally teachers' practices are influenced by their beliefs and motivations to teach. Team members explore the role of motivation in teaching, learning.
