Avi Kaplan, an Associate Professor of Educational Psychology from Temple University, spent two days with faculty and graduate students in the Fall semester on the Pullman campus. Avi is an expert in student motivation, self-regulation, learning environments, and self and identity development.
Avi provided scoring training for a new assessment involving written response to item prompts that assess a student’s motivation and development related to college success. We are implementing this measure with the TCI project this year. In addition to training, Avi gave a graduate seminar talk to faculty and students from Educational Psychology and Prevention Science.
