Stephen N. Elliott, PhD is the founding Director of the Learning Sciences Institute, a trans-university research enterprise at Arizona State University, and is the Mickelson Foundation Professor of Education. He received his doctorate at Arizona State University in 1980 and has been on the faculty at several major research universities, including the University of Wisconsin-Madison and Vanderbilt University. At Wisconsin (1987-2004), Steve was a professor of educational psychology and served as the Associate Director of the Wisconsin Center for Education Research. At Vanderbilt (2004-2010), he was the Dunn Family Professor of Educational and Psychological Assessment in the Special Education Department and directed the Learning Sciences Institute and Dunn Family Scholars Program. His research focuses on scale development and educational assessment practices. In particular, he has published articles on (a) the assessment of children's social skills and academic competence, (b) the use of testing accommodations and alternate assessment methods for evaluating the academic performance of students with disabilities for educational accountability, and (c) students' opportunities to learn the intended curriculum. Steve's scholarly and professional contributions have been recognized by his colleagues in education and psychology research as evidenced by being selected as an American Psychological Association Senior Scientist in 2009. Steve consults with state assessment leaders on the assessment and instruction of PreK-12 students, and serves on ETS's Visiting Research Panel, and is the Director of Research and Scientific Practice for the Society of the Study of School Psychology. Ryan J. Kettler, PhD is a Research Assistant Professor in Special Education at Peabody College of Vanderbilt University. He received his doctorate in Educational Psychology, with a specialization in School Psychology, from the University of Wisconsin-Madison in 2005. Ryan's dissertation, Identifying students who need help early: Validation of the Brief Academic Competence Evaluation Screening System, won the 2006 Outstanding Dissertation award from the Wisconsin School Psychologists Association. In 2007, he was named an Early Career Scholar by the Society for the Study of School Psychology. Prior to joining Vanderbilt University, Ryan was an assistant professor at California State University, Los Angeles, and completed an APA-accredited internship at Ethan Allen School in Wales, Wisconsin. He has worked on multiple federally funded grants examining the effectiveness of alternate assessments, academic and behavioral screening systems, and testing accommodations. Ryan is the author of peer reviewed publications and presentations within the broader area of data-based assessment for intervention, representing specific interests in academic and behavioral screening, inclusive assessment, reliability and validity issues, and rating scale technology. He currently serves as a consultant to College Board and to the Wisconsin Center for Education Research, providing expertise in the area of inclusive assessment. Peter A. Beddow, PhD received his doctorate in Special Education and Educational Psychology at Vanderbilt University in 2011. His research focuses on test accessibility and item-writing for assessments of student achievement. He is the senior author of the Test Accessibility and Modification Inventory (TAMI) and the Accessibility Rating Matrix, a set of tools for evaluating the accessibility of test items for learners with a broad range of abilities and needs. Based on his work on accessibility theory, Peter was awarded the Bonsal Education Research Entrepreneurship Award in 2009 and the Melvyn R. Semmel Dissertation Research Award in 2010. Prior to beginning his academic career, Peter taught for seven years in Los Angeles County, including five years teaching Special Education for students with emotional and behavior problems at Five Acres School, part of a residential treatment facility for children who are wards-of-the-court for reasons of abuse and
