Marc Levis-FitzgeraldDr. Marc Levis-Fitzgerald was hired in 1999 as the Director of the newly established Office of Undergraduate Evaluation and Research. The office was renamed in 2009 and is now called the Center for Educational Assessment. Marc earned a B.A. in Economics and French at UCLA and an M.A. and Ph.D. in Higher Education at UCLA. His research interests include curriculum reform and evaluation, student and faculty development, and institutional transformation. He is particularly interested in documenting the experience of undergraduate students, and directs the development and implementation of the UCLA Senior Survey. He heads several undergraduate science initiative assessment projects funded by NSF and HHMI. In addition, he leads program review efforts related to the Transfer Alliance Program, a partnership between UCLA and community colleges in California. His recent work with large data sets and increased expertise in learning analytics are responding to the latest campus calls for more contextual, comprehensive, and long-term data, integrated and readily available from multiple sources. In responding to this call, Marc’s work is primed to evolve with the needs of research collaborators, increasing his capacity to measure and improve student outcomes.
