Dr. Kulasegaram (Mahan)'s research examines educational assessment as an opportunity to enhance learning and in particular, how to support transfer of learning. This involves reexamining the entire context of assessment—the objectives, process, tools, learners and raters—from theoretical perspectives informed by theories from psychology and educational measurement. Additionally, he studies the role of educational 'big' data including assessment data in evaluating, assessing and improving medical education across the continuum of training. His other interests include research methods and instructional design to support transfer.
