TUCL Projects

Our Lab typically is engaged in a variety of research projects focused on children at various ages, ranging from early childhood (i.e., Pre-K and Kindergarten aged) up to adolescence (i.e., Middle/High School aged). In addition we also engage in research projects with undergraduate students. Our research projects commonly center on understanding questions such as:

  • How do spatial and numerical magnitude understanding develop and how can we improve them?”
  • “How do children think about their math and reading ability?”

Research projects may differ in terms of their set-up, but typically have consisted of one or two session studies, involving the completion of online questionnaires independently and then either playing some games and/or completing some measures over Zoom with a researcher. Our studies are typically fairly short, with our one-session studies generally totaling 20-minutes and our two-session studies generally totaling 45- to 60-minutes.
