- Author BiographyDr. R. Eric Landrum received his Ph.D. in Cognitive Psychology with an emphasis in Quantitative Methodology from Southern Illinois University-Carbondale in 1989, and joined the Boise State University Psychology Department in 1992. He served as Chair of the Psychology Department from 1996-2000. For the 2005-2006 academic year, he served as the Interim Chair of the Psychology Department. The general trend underlying Dr. Landrum's research centers on college student success. How can we best create a teaching and learning environment that allows students to achieve their academic goals? Much of this work involves the development of survey and questionnaire instruments to measure behavioral outcomes--involving good theoretical design of instruments, establishment of validity and reliability, and other measurement operations.

Currently he is Visiting Distinguished Professor of Psychology at Texas Wesleyan University and Distinguished Guest Professor at Morningside College.
