Dr. Lee Branum-Martin is an associate professor in psychology whose work focuses on measurement questions in language and literacy. His favorite class to teach is Longitudinal Analysis. He finds the complexities of longitudinal data interesting, but more importantly, they intensify the crucial questions of measurement he is already interested in. Those questions include to what extent are the abilities we measure stable over time? To what extent do changes over time suggest interesting complexities in human learning or development, and most importantly, what can we do about it? Branum-Martin’s work with the ALRC brings a sharp focus on those issues for adult learners.
Branum-Martin mentors students in developing their scientific questions and statistical models. They work as collaborators and co-authors.
Branum-Martin is one of the co-PIs of the Center for the Study of Adult Literacy (CSAL) grant. He is proud of shaping the scientific questions that formed the core of the CSAL grant, as well as shaping several scientific presentations that came out of that project. A great deal was learned about the quality of tests as well as the distinctive features of adults who struggle with reading.
