Jeremy D. Finn, PhD, a national education expert, uses
quantitative research methods to study policy issues related to
K-12 education. He investigates topics including the effect of
class size on learning, academic performance, graduation rates and
future employment. Finn was a principal investigator in the largest
randomized study done on class size in American education. The
landmark longitudinal study of 12,000 students started in 1985 and
is ongoing, with researchers assessing whether there is a
connection between class size and other life characteristics such
as employment and mortality rates. Finn, who serves as associate
dean for research in UB’s Graduate School of Education, has
held research fellowships at the National Research Council,
Educational Testing Service and International Association for the
Evaluation of Educational Achievement.
