R. Steve McCallum, professor and head of the Department of Educational Psychology and Counseling, so far this year has co-authored three articles in refereed journals, two book chapters, three papers at national conferences, and two papers at an international conference in Alicante, Spain, and has three publications in press. Most of his work focuses on assessment of cognition, reading and related constructs, and the relationship between assessment and academic performance.
McCallum, a fellow of the American Psychological Association, is a past recipient of the John Tunstall Outstanding Faculty Award for the College of Education, Health, and Human Sciences. McCallum is co-author of three assessment-related textbooks in the field, over 100 refereed journal articles, several book chapters, and over 200 national and international conference presentations. McCallum is also author or co-author of a number of tests, most notably the Universal Nonverbal Intelligence Test (UNIT), which is commonly used to assess intelligence for populations who do not have English as a first language, such as those who are deaf, hard of hearing, culturally different, or have speech and language deficiencies.
