Comprehensive Exam in Cognition & Instruction >> Overview

The purpose of this web site is to document my work as a doctoral student in the Department of Educational Psychology at the University of Connecticut (UConn). On these web pages you will find samples of my best research work in the Cognition & Instruction Program. Use the menu to the left to view my responses to each of six elements required for the comprehensive exam.

Most of the samples provided on these pages are related to my research interests, which center around online learning and its use within military training environments. In my research to date, I have used a social cognitive view of self-regulation to investigate how personal motivational beliefs, such as task value and self-efficacy, influence student success in online learning situations.

Please see the Cognition & Instruction Program web pages for more information on the general procedures and requirements for the comprehensive exam.
