Over the years I have worked on various comparability and validation projects at Cambridge Assessment, including the unique ‘Aspects of Writing’ research series. I also manage divisional data collection tools and machine marking of multiple-choice tests for the University of Cambridge.
I am currently working on a project to investigate teaching of practical cookery in secondary schools. The Assessment Research and Development division first explored this area in 2007, so it will be interesting to look at changes over the last decade.
I have an MA in Information and Library Management from Northumbria University and in my spare time, I enjoy yoga, playing piano, and going on outdoor adventures with my son.
