Research interests

Chad Gotch works to maximize effective and appropriate use of educational assessment. To this end, he studies the development of assessment literacy among both pre-service and in-service teachers, the communication of assessment results (e.g. score reporting), and the construction validity arguments from both technical and non-technical evidence. These complimentary lines of research inform the life cycle of assessment, from development to use and policy.
