About the Lab

Welcome to the Quantitative Analysis of Learning, Interventions, and Testing for Youth (QuALITY) lab page. The lab is part of the Center for Promoting Research to Practice in the College of Education at Lehigh University.

Dr. Ethan Van Norman is the director of the lab and works with Lehigh University School Psychology graduate students, faculty from other Universities, school districts, and non-profits, on the various projects described on this site.

The broad purpose of the QuALITY lab is to identify and refine effective assessment practices consistent with an ecological problem-solving model used within contemporary service delivery frameworks in schools.

In particular, much of the research conducted in the lab focuses on screening and progress monitoring practices within  multi-tiered systems of support (MTSS).
