Two students having a conversation

CALM Research

CALM Research is dedicated to examining and improving teaching and learning in K-12 settings through the study of classroom assessment, learning, and motivation theory and practice. Assessment, learning and motivation are fundamentally integrated in teaching and learning experience and, while typically explored independently, our overriding goal is to develop deep understandings of how these processes function and can be enhanced in actual classroom practice. Through our work, we explore the learning experiences of both students and teachers in order to best meet the needs and enhance the strengths of those working in K-12 settings.
