Rachel Wollschläger coordinates the test development laboratory (TD_Lab), which aims at developing state-of-the-art research-based assessment instruments and regroups the centre’s core methodological expertise, as well as the large-scale statistics laboratory (LSS_Lab), which focuses on analysing and visualising (longitudinal) large-scale assessment data and regroups the centre’s expertise in advanced statistical methods. In these functions, she contributes to the unique Luxembourgish School Monitoring Programme “Épreuves Standardisées (ÉpStan)”. In her research, she combines differential, personality and psychometric aspects. In addition, she teaches both undergraduate and (post-)graduate courses.

She finished her studies of psychology at the University of Trier, Germany, and the Università di Pisa, Italy, in 2012 focusing on psychological assessment and educational psychology. Thereafter, Rachel worked at the centre for social paediatrics in Trier (SPZ Trier) before she continued her postgraduate studies at the University of Trier. In December 2016, Rachel completed her PhD on diagnostic competencies of primary school teachers.

Throughout her professional career, Rachel’s focus has been trying to improving the learning situation of students by analysing assessment tools, training educational professionals in diagnostics, identifying challenges and, thus, providing practical solutions to the field of education.
