Laura graduated from Andrews University with her bachelor's degree in 2008 and her master's in 2018. She began work on a PhD in fall 2022 in evaluation, measurement and research. She married Nathan Carroll in 2011 and lives in Berrien Springs. Laura is the middle of seven children and loves to spend time with her family and friends. One of her favorite activities is scrapbooking with her sisters, and playing board games like Boggle, Scabble, Splendor, Settlers of Catan and Risk. She also enjoys teaching, tutoring statistics and math and loves to learn.
December of 2006, I traveled with 20 other students from Andrews University to Honduras to help at the orphanage. We put on a VBS and I enjoyed helping the children learn more about Jesus. I am very active in my church in Buchanan, MI and loves to share Jesus with others.
Currently, Laura is participating in assessment activities by listening to webinars and reading journal articles on assessment. Laura has a variety of software that she is learning and helping others learn how to use including but not limited to SPSS, Class Climate (survey tool), Anthology and Tableau. She is also learning how to make a dashboard with MS Word and Excel to present important data. Laura has applied for graduate school to start her PhD in Evaluation, Measurement, and Research in the Fall of 2022 at Western Michigan University. She is excited about getting her PhD and can't wait to use the information for her work.
