Dr. Noelle A. Paufler received her Ph.D. in Educational Policy and Evaluation with an emphasis in Research Methods from Arizona State University. Her experiences as a high school social studies teacher, district administrator and applied researcher in large urban and suburban school districts in the Phoenix metropolitan area inspired her to conduct research related to teacher accountability policies and systems. Her research interests include: educational policy, the communication of educational research and its influence on policy, and the impact of standards and accountability systems on practitioners on local contexts. In her most recent research, she examined the perceptions of school administrators and teachers regarding the standards they used to measure the effectiveness of their teacher evaluation system in practice.
