My research interests include two broad areas:

  1. student success in higher education, the factors that correlate with success, and their underlying causes
  2. the measures that are used by institutions, government entities, accrediting agencies, public media, and academic researchers to assess and evaluate success

Related to these two major areas, of particular interest to me are the following:

  • retention and degree completion of undergraduate and graduate students
  • service-learning
  • success in the STEM disciplines
  • quantitative research methods
  • survey research and instrument development
  • program evaluation
  • use of institutional data and national data sets for research
