Canda Mueller, Ph.D.
Vice President of Strategic Measurement Solutions, Psychometric Research Services
Dr. Mueller leads the organization’s vision, strategy, planning, and process for developing state assessments, bringing to the role five years of executive-level experience at Questar, where she designed large-scale assessment programs. Over a dozen years, Dr. Mueller served as lead psychometrician on several state-level, high-stakes projects for grades K – 12, including accountability, English Language Learner, and alternate assessments. She says the process of bringing together educators from across a state to talk about their expectations of students at different performance levels guides both the assessment vendor and department of education officials and ensures that content is vertically aligned.
