Commissioned Papers
Mark Appelbaum, Ph.D.

Dr. Appelbaum received his Ph.D. in quantitative psychology with a concentration in behavioral statistics from the University of Illinois in 1968. Dr. Appelbaum was on the faculty of the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, Vanderbilt University, and is currently a professor in the Department of Psychology at the University of California, San Diego. His work has focused on the use of quantitative methods and data analytic approaches to the study of a wide range of problems encountered in psychology, medicine, and education.

His work in quantitative methods has focused upon several different problems including the analysis of non-orthogonal designs, the analysis of longitudinal studies (including both traditional analytic approaches and growth curve methodology), methods for studying variability, randomization methods, and the design and analysis of large-scale multisite studies. He has published in a wide range of journals including Psychological Bulletin, Psychometrika, Child Development, Developmental Psychology, Brain and Language, Journal of the American Medical Association, Psychosomatic Medicine, and Journal of Educational Statistics.

In addition to his work on quantitative methods, Dr. Appelbaum has been highly involved in a number of substantive areas of research including major studies of non-maternal childcare, studies of health and human behavior, studies relating architecture of brain and mind, HIV transmission in at-risk populations, and numerous studies of educational polices and outcomes. He currently directs the research, assessment, and evaluation component of UCSD’s Center for Research in Educational Equity, Assessment, and Teaching Excellence and is co-director of the Center for Human Development at UCSD.

Dr. Appelbaum is the founding editor of Psychological Methods and was editor of the Psychological Bulletin. He has been a member of the Governing Council of the Society for Research in Child Development and chairman of the Publications Committee of the American Psychological Society. He has served as a member of the SAT College Entrance Examination Board as well as numerous other boards and advisory groups.
