Meet the Author

Robert J. Wright is a professor of educational psychology who specializes in the study of educational statistics and measurement. This new textbook is drawn from his 30 plus year career as a teacher, researcher, and mentor. He earned his doctorate in educational psychology from Temple University and went on to further study in school psychology at Lehigh University. As a doctoral student he also completed an advanced fellowship training program in clinical and rehabilitation psychology at Moss Hospital of the Albert Einstein Medical Center in Philadelphia.

In addition to his career as a professor of educational psychology in the Center for Education at Widener University, he has also served as the director of testing for the American College of Psychiatrists, the Association of Academic Psychiatrists, and the American Association of Directors of Psychiatry Resident Training Programs. Working with those professional associations he was responsible for the development, scoring, and distribution of the annual Psychiatry Resident In-Training Examination (PRITE), which is given in all 400 residency education centers in the United States.

Professor Wright has also served on test development committees responsible for the writing of new state mandated teacher licensing examinations; and, he has been a reader for the new SAT II® Writing Test.

For much of Professor Wright’s career he has mentored doctoral students in the development of their research programs. His scholarship has been focused on large scale testing programs and state standards based testing programs. Many of the 100 plus doctoral dissertations he chaired over his career have focused on high-stakes testing.
