Jeanne Sinclair is a 5th year PhD student whose research interest is assessment validation for multilingual and multicultural students with a wide range of learning differences, especially concerning score interpretation and use. Recent publications in this area can be found in Language and Education and the International Journal of Bilingual Education and Bilingualism. She is also keenly interested in longitudinal psychometric research relating to students from diverse cultural and linguistic backgrounds, which can support timely and tailored educational interventions, as reported in Reading Research Quarterly. For her thesis she is investigating the validity of an artificial-intelligence infused assessment of language and literacy for academic support program placement decisions.

She has a master's degree in Bicultural-Bilingual Studies from the University of Texas at San Antonio. Jeanne was a full-time bilingual teacher in Texas public schools from 2009-2014, primarily working with young students whose families had immigrated from Mexico and Central America.
