The Learning & Performance Research Center is home to an array of educational and psychological research projects. LPRC provides leadership, training, consultation, and state-of-the-art solutions to challenging educational research questions at the university, state, national, and international levels.

Our expertise lies in three complementary areas of inquiry: evaluation, cognition, and measurement. This combination allows us to examine human performance through the development of assessments; expand understanding of human cognitive architecture and its implications for effective instruction; evaluate interventions in authentic contexts, and improve psychometric and research methodology. Our focal areas of research include the development of expertise in the sciences and engineering, large-scale assessment, educational and psychological measurement, and factors that impact students’ success in the educational pipeline.
