Our current research focus is the multidisciplinary field of Computational Psychometrics which uses the methods of psychometrics, cognitive science, usability engineering, mathematical statistics, and statistical machine learning to address problems in understanding and identifying probabilistic models of human knowledge, human learning models, and human information processing.

The team is currently developing a computational psychometric model of student learning in classroom environments.
