Dr. Andrew Maul
This week, we talk with Dr. Andrew Maul, an Associate Professor in the Department of Education at the University of California, Santa Barbara. Andrew’s work focuses on the conceptual and historical foundations of research methodology in the human sciences, and in particular on the theory and practice of measurement. His work integrates lines of inquiry traditionally associated with philosophy, psychology, history, and statistics, and aims to help improve the logical and ethical defensibility of methodological practices in the human sciences. He regularly teaches courses on the construction and validation of measuring instruments, item response theory, and the philosophy of measurement, as well as introductory and advanced research methods and applied statistics.
