Areas Served and Specialty Focus

Lindsey leads the analysis of data from a variety of sources and prepares visual displays of data and reports for a range of audiences. She consults with academic programs, colleges, campuses, and UCORE to plan, design and implement program-level assessment activities, data analysis, and use of results in ways that are meaningful, manageable, and sustainable. She also assists faculty and programs in obtaining direct and indirect measures of student learning, helping to optimize data collection tools and methods for formative and summative assessment.

Biography

Lindsey has worked in the Office of Assessment for Curricular Effectiveness (formerly the Office of Assessment of Teaching and Learning) since 2014. Previously, she worked at WSU as an Associate in Research with the School of Food Science focusing on the role of functional foods in health.
