Dr. Garret Hall is an assistant professor in the MS/EdS School Psychology program as well as the Combined Counseling and School Psychology PhD program. He graduated with his PhD in Educational Psychology (School Psychology Area) from the University of Wisconsin-Madison in 2020. He received his M.S. in Educational Psychology (School Psychology Area) from the University of Wisconsin-Madison in 2017, and he received a B.A. with majors in English and Psychology from Northern Illinois University in 2015.
Dr. Hall’s research focuses primarily on development of academic skills (especially mathematics). This includes examining predictors of academic development (such as language and linguistic diversity as well executive functions) as well as equitable methods to assess, prevent, and intervene on academic difficulties. He is also interested in quantitative methods in school psychology research and practice (such as causal inference, measurement, and longitudinal methods) and how these methods can inform school-based prevention and intervention within multi-tiered systems of supports (MTSS). Last, he is interested in how “ecological” factors within MTSS promote students’ academic, social, emotional, and behavioral functioning, such as implementation fidelity and family-school involvement.
