This group focuses on how psychometrics and information technology can be applied to outcomes science.  We help develop measures which benefit from technology in their development and administration, measurement systems to enable large scale data collection, and technology based instruments which are focused on personalized data collection – from web-based applications through smartphone apps and wearables.
