About Kristen

Prior to joining Measurement Incorporated, I worked with physically and developmentally disabled children and adults with diverse skill-building activities including daily and community living skills. I served as an English Language Arts (ELA) teacher trainer for elementary and secondary teachers in the Philippines providing counseling in English teaching methodologies, as well as creating and implementing workshops for the enhancement of teaching English as a Second Language. While working as a freelance writer and editor, I created educational materials at the collegiate level.

Through my work with Measurement Incorporated, I have nearly 14 years of educational assessment experience. Specifically within the Research and Development department, I have held many responsibilities associated with managing and directing aspects of item development projects for statewide educational assessments. I have assisted in the supervision of item development staff including other content specialists and item writers. I also have experience in educator training, utilizing my background in training and development to design, develop, and implement various educational workshops. Prior to working in item development, I worked as an Item Writer for the Research and Development department, as well a Reader/Evaluator in Measurement Incorporated’s Performance Assessment Scoring department.

I have been working with and studying the Common Core State Standards (CCSS) for English Language Arts on a daily basis since their release in 2010. I have developed a strong understanding of the CCSS, as well as Webb’s Depth of Knowledge, the Revised Bloom’s Taxonomy, and I’m developing an understanding of the latest information coming from organizations such as SBAC, PARCC, and SAP. I find that in the current and ever-changing world of education, it is helpful to be as far out in front in understanding the changes as they present themselves. In keeping up with their daily requirements as classroom teachers and administrators, it is often helpful for them to look to others within the system for expert help in understanding new federal guidelines.
