ORGANIZED PROBES USED IN TANDEM WITH A STANDARDIZED INSTRUMENT: ASSESSMENT PROBES AND THE TEMA-2
ACKNOWLEDGEMENTS (somewhat abridged version)
Many thanks to everyone who has provided me guidance and support along the way. I remember it all no matter how inconsequential it might have been to you! In particular, I’d like to thank the following people: my dissertation committee, Profs. Herb Ginsburg, Steve Peverly and Gary Natriello for being there for the long haul and for always pointing me in the right direction and Profs. Linda Hickson and Barbara Simon for their time and comments; the participants of my study, the principals, vice principals, teachers and students from the two schools, the panel members and my research assistants, Vivek and Kelly, for their hard work; my friends, old school and new school, especially Kathy S., ohmo, jsmooth, emmyo, The Tea Group (Elinor, Charlotte and Amy) and the Wellesley crowd (particularly El, Pauline, Suzy, Amy and Sandy), for always being just one e-mail or instant message reply away; my mentors/friends, Dr. Kathy R., Dr. Ellin H. and Marijane Meaker, for their consistently excellent advice and encouraging words; my special family friends for fond memories; and of course, my family (there are too many wonderful relatives in Korea and in the U.S. to list, but I’m grateful to you all!), especially my grandmother and grandfather, my cousins, JK, CK and AP, the Ohs (my other family), my brother, my mother and father, for everything else.
