Her focus is on students with educational special needs and she aims to find out how to develop assessment and training of domain-general cognitive competences by utilizing adaptive tests. In particular, Laura’s goal is to determine how students’ motivational learning related beliefs can be evaluated in each academic test by log data analysis, and what kind of added value the information gained from the log data can provide for practical evaluation and teaching.
