Rachel C. Callan, M.S.

I am a fifth-year PhD candidate at Old Dominion University in Dr. Richard Lander’s lab. I received my B.S. in Psychology from Penn State University in 2007 where my research interests were mainly in Cognitive Psychology. I spent most of my time in Dr. David Rosenbaum’s Lab for Cognition and Action on Following graduation, my research interests shifted to I/O Psychology with a focus on training and selection. My thesis was completed in 2012 at Old Dominion. My study investigated learner control in an online training program, and specfifically how time and preior task experience may play a role in posttest performance. In addition to studying how technology can improve training and selectionin organizations, I am also interested in problems that arise when new technology is adopted too quickly or without considering psychological theory.

Current areas of interest include:

  • Online Training
  • Social Networks
  • Integrity
  • Adaptive Testing
  • Learner Control
