CAS professor to serve on National Research Council Committee

TAMPA, Fla. – A University of South Florida professor is continuing to serve on the National Academy of Sciences’ National Research Council Committee on Measuring Human Capabilities: Performance Potential of Individuals and Collectives.

Stephen Stark, a professor and associate chair from the Department of Psychology, serves as a committee member on the study commissioned by the U.S. Army Research Institute for the Behavioral and Social Sciences. Stark has focused his research on the development and application of psychometric methods to personal problems in industrial organizational and educational settings.

The goal of the committee for this 30-month study is to identify skills, abilities and interpersonal attributes that lead to successful contributions from individuals as they form collective groups. The committee also will author a consensus report to provide recommendations about the sponsor’s long-term (through 2035) research objectives, which will potentially be used to develop and fund future research opportunities.
