Myresearch interests focus on different aspects of rhetoric and composition. First, I am interested in issues related to writing assessment, specifically assessment that occurs in the classroom (responding to student writing, grading, portfolios, conferencing, etc) and methods of large-scale assessment (placement, exit testing, standardized testing, etc). My research also focuses on graduate students serving as writing program administrators, literacy issues, writing-across-the-curriculum, using popular culture in writing classrooms, and working class studies.
