Dr. Flake and the members of her laboratory at McGill University are part of the Quantitative Psychology and Modelling area of the Department of Psychology. We are working on developing best practices for the use of latent variable models in psychological measurement. 

We conduct applied measurement and modeling research. We are currently working on developing rigorous and transparent research practices for measurement development and use, models for assessing measurement equivalence, handling clustered data structures, and addressing measurement challenges in large-scale replication research. We also often collaborate with others to study students’ achievement motivation and other non-cognitive skills. You can learn more about our recent research here, and the members of the lab here.

We will be reviewing graduate student applications for the Fall 2024 admission. See Join the Lab for more information.
