Applied Developmental Psychology: grade retention; delayed school entry; academic outcomes for low-income and minority populations; assessment and evaluation

Jordan is a third-year PhD student in Dr. Winsler’s lab. She graduated from Emory & Henry College in 2017 with B.A.s in Psychology and French, and received her M.A. in Applied Developmental Psychology from George Mason in 2019. During her time at Emory, she conducted a variety of research projects that ranged from understanding prejudicial attitudes toward the LGBTQ community to assessing how developmental variables affected children’s responses to psychological measures. Her current research interests include the long-term academic outcomes associated with grade retention in both early and later school years, delayed kindergarten entry, and early childhood experiences associated with later achievement.
