Principal Test Developer
John is the principal test developer for the Verbal, Reading, and Writing sections of the SSAT. He works closely with outside consultants and the SSAT Verbal and Reading committees to develop multiple-choice and free-response questions for these three measures and then with EMA psychometricians to assemble the questions into statistically balanced test forms.
Prior to joining our team in 2019, John worked for 17 years as an assessment specialist at Educational Testing Service (ETS), developing multiple-choice and free-response questions for the SAT, PSAT, GRE, Praxis, and AP Latin exams among others.
John holds degrees in Classics (Greek and Latin) from Pomona College and Princeton University.
