Stemler, Steven E. – Educational Psychologist, 2012
University admissions tests should predict an applicant's ability to succeed in college, but how should this success be defined and measured?

Kellogg, Ronald T.; Whiteford, Alison P. – Educational Psychologist, 2009
The development of advanced writing skills has been neglected in schools of the United States, with even some college graduates lacking the level of ability required in the workplace (National Commission on Writing, 2003, 2004). The core problem, we argue, is an insufficient degree of appropriate task practice distributed throughout the secondary…
