Learning assessment at 62 years old
Several months ago, I went through an emotional and eye-opening experience writing an article about the Education Evaluation Center at TRI. Learning that there is a place filled with kind, wonderful, knowledgeable people who can help a person find out why life can sometimes feel like an unsolvable puzzle, I couldn’t help wondering if they might find an answer for me.

We have all heard the horror stories about the assault that can happen in college, so naturally I was worried when I first came to WOU. Luckily, I learned about Abby’s House and all of the great services they provide. Not only do they provide resources for sexual violence, but they also have information on a multitude of subjects like women’s health, depression, and gender identity. And now they have the Abby’s House mobile app that brings even more peace of mind with resources and services for dating violence and sexual assault available at your fingertips!

Teaching Research Institute, in partnership with the Oregon Health &
Science University (OHSU), has begun recruiting for a study on
Executive Function in infants and toddlers born Low Birth Weight (LBW).
"It is so exciting to have cutting-edge research happening at TRI," says
Dr. Ella Taylor, Director of TRI. "Since it was founded, more than 50
years ago, TRI has conducted research studies that have dramatically
changed the face of education in America." For example, Dr. Edward
Palmer's research on what holds the attention of pre-school children to
television, that took place at TRI back in the 1960s and 70s, became the
foundation for the Children's Television Workshop that created Sesame
Street. “This new study on Executive Function in babies born Low Birth Weight has the potential to transform the field
as Dr. Palmer's research did in education,” Dr. Taylor stated.
