Dr. Amy Gaumer Erickson, an associate research professor at the University of Kansas Center for Research on Learning, focuses on comprehensive implementation and evaluation of educational initiatives that improve in-school and post-school outcomes for students. Her works centers on the implementation of instructional practices within a Multi-Tiered System of Supports (MTSS) that enable students with and without disabilities to become college and career ready. Through her collaboration with state departments of education, Dr. Gaumer Erickson designs high-quality professional development and implements evaluation plans that track the fidelity of implementation, as well as the short-term, intermediate, and long-term outcomes for students. To support continuous educational improvement, she has developed evaluation instruments that provide a school-wide perspective on educators’ implementation.
