Alumni Profile: Allison Rudolph '09

AllisonAs a project manager conducting research and program evaluations of teacher professional development and pre-service teacher preparation programs, I continue to use the skills I developed while obtaining my degree in sociology. I frequently conduct literature reviews to guide the language and formatting of survey instruments I develop to garner participant feedback. When analyzing student data to determine the effect of professional development opportunities for teachers on their students' achievement, I refer to the quantitative measurement course I took. All the papers synthesizing theorists provided me with the chance to hone my writing skills in preparation for creating documents that provide my clients with actionable information about their program and its effects.
