Kenneth Rath, Ph.D.
Kenneth Rath has been involved in educational evaluation since 1999. He began working with the Online Web-based Learning (OWL) system while still in graduate school at the University of Massachusetts Amherst, and has worked on a wide variety of projects since that time. After receiving his Ph.D. in Educational Psychology in 2002, he worked in a postdoctoral position as the resident evaluator for UMass Amherst's Center for Computer-Based Instructional Technology (CCBIT) before officially moving to Peterfreund Associates in 2003. Prior to pursuing a degree in psychology, he majored in Chemistry at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute, where he received his B.S. His dissertation research involved the cognitive processes associated with reading disabilities among children.
Since beginning in the field of educational evaluation, Ken has been involved numerous projects, ranging from broad programs dedicated to helping underrepresented minority students succeed in the sciences to specific interventions designed to improve learning of particular topics. To date, most of his work has been with postsecondary, domestic programs in both the postsecondary and K-12 arenas.
When not working for SageFox, Ken is an amateur writer of fantasy fiction, a religious education teacher, and pursues an active interest in religion, ancient, medieval, and natural history, and the Latin language. He lives in Amherst, Mass. with his wife and two children.
