Learner Objectives

This session will help participants…

  1. advance research in the COVID-19 era.
  2. improve graduate education in remote learning environments.
  3. report new techniques for research with remote learning.


Student research on interventions is responsible for innovation and promoting the power of possibilities in school psychology. A survey of 107 doctoral students in school psychology shows that 87% of students have had their research disrupted due to school responses to COVID-19. Also, 84% of students whose research was disrupted are changing from intervention research to survey or archival research. Details of the current survey and recommendations for intervention research and the profession are provided.
