Home Staff Linda McGuigan

I currently manage several projects for CRIPSAT including the development of scientific enquiry items for national tests at KS2 (2003-2006)and KS3 (2003-2005), the diagnostic analysis of pupil performance at KS2(2001-2003) the development of optional task materials for assessment at KS2 and KS3.

My work is informed by a keen interest in the processes of teaching and learning and a long commitment to collaborative research with practising teachers.

One of my preoccupations for several years has been research which aims to understand how models of learning derived from cognitive psychology might be used to inform and explain learning in the classroom setting. I feel particularly privileged since most of my work takes me regularly into classrooms and laboratories. Without the patience and cooperation of teachers and their pupils much of this work would be impossible.
