For the University of Nebraska–Lincoln portion of Well Managed Schools (WMS) trial, the principal investigator (PI) will help guide hypothesis tests, analytic plans and results interpretation in consultation with the lead analyst and project investigators.

He will also lead a measures workgroup tasked with identifying the sources of measures used in the study and guiding decisions about scale creation to develop reliable and valid measures for hypothesis testing. This group will develop documents that will serve as permanent documentation for the project. 

A graduate research assistant will help develop study documentation, including codebooks and tech reports (e.g., documenting the sources and psychometrics of measures), to support statistical analyses addressing the aims; conduct literature searches; and contribute to project presentations and papers.
