Assistant Professor, Department of Curriculum and Instruction, College of Education
Expertise: My research focuses primarily on theorizing the nature of short- and long-term interests in STEM disciplines, and designing learning environments that are truly engaging to students. This has led me to investigate learning and interest-based participation in settings as diverse as classrooms, after-school programs, and hobby practices (model rocketry and amateurs astronomy). Intersecting with this central research focus, my other research interests include the use and creation of technical representations and the way these mediate knowing and learning; the discourse and practices of engaged participation in STEM classrooms; and social justice issues in STEM education. This work has appeared in publications such as the Journal of the Learning Sciences, Cognition and Instruction, and the Journal of Mathematical Behavior.

Expertise: Dr. Beretvas is primarily interested in the evaluation and innovative application of psychometric and statistical models. Her research involves the evaluation of models using simulation studies and application using real data sets. She is currently focused on examining extensions to the multilevel model that are intended to handle student mobility and other sources of data structure complexities. Dr. Beretvas also assesses meta-analytic techniques including meta-analysis of results from group comparison studies as well as the synthesis of single-case research design studies' results.

Expertise: Dr. Bryant has served as the Principal Investigator on an early numeracy, response to intervention grant funded by the Institute of Education Sciences, the 3-Tier Mathematics Elementary & Secondary Intervention Project funded by the Texas Education Agency, and the MSTAR Intervention program funded by the Meadows Foundation. Dr. Bryant was chosen to participate in the National Science Foundation funded "Beginning Substantive Collaboration between Mathematics Education and Special Education Symposium: Teaching Mathematics to Students within the RtI Process." She is the author/co-author of books, tests, and research articles that focus on educational interventions for improving the mathematics and reading performance of students with learning disabilities, and the use of assistive technology for individuals with disabilities. Her research articles represent 20 years of working collaboratively with school districts and teachers on interventions for students with learning disabilities and who are at-risk for educational difficulties.
