The primary purpose of the QMI division is in the application of rigorous research methods and advanced statistical analyses to research related to improving social, educational, behavioral, psychological, and emotional outcomes across the developmental spectrum from birth to adulthood. For these key outcomes, QMI is dedicated to the design and analysis of experimental and quasi-experimental research, the study of individual differences, screening and identification, and innovations for connecting people to data.
