I am a statistical consultant with nearly 20 years of experience working in the field of assessment in education. My research evidence has been used to influence policy decisions and to help in implementing changes to national assessments in England, Wales and Northern Ireland - GCSE and A-level examinations.
I am a statistical consultant based in Woking. I became a Chartered Statistician in 2000 and have been working in the field of statistics since 1992. I have a BSc in Mathematics, Statistics and Operational Research (University of Plymouth, 1990) and an MSc in Statistics with Applications in Medicine (University of Southampton, 1992).
I have a very strong background in statistics. I have first-hand experience of both qualitative and quantitative research. I have analysed data using parametric and non-parametric statistics, using sophisticated models but also using graphical representation to simplify findings. I regularly deal with data extracted from large datasets, collected by experimental design and resulting from questionnaires.
In the context of my assessment and education research, I have considered a diverse range of issues relating to standards, the design of mark schemes, the identification of errant examiners, learner approaches and marking reliability.
I maintain a keen interest in new developments in the field of statistics but regard the communication of statistical analyses as my greatest strength.
