  • I am most passionate about studying questions about the validity of psychological assessment. When a person produces an unusual score on an IQ test, a memory test, an attention test, a personality test, or a mental health measure, how confident can we be that this unusual score is important? What are the practical implications of this score? To what degree does the same score mean the same thing for different kinds of people? Can we invent new tests that improve upon existing ones? How can clinicians to a better job of integrating large amounts of assessment data into a valid, coherent, and helpful conceptualization of a person and the person's struggle to meet life's demands.
