    Dr. Hogrebe is an educational researcher in the Department of Education and studies topics related to the teacher education program.

    Dr. Hogrebe is an educational researcher in the Department of Education and studies topics related to the teacher education program. He collaborates with the Missouri Department of Elementary and Secondary Education (DESE) on data reporting and teacher education and is a member of the Missouri Technical Advisory Committee that studies issues related to teacher education program assessment. He received his Ph.D. in Educational Psychology from the University of Georgia and has taught courses in applied statistics, research methods, tests and measurement, and GIS for educational researchers. He presently teaches the Foundations of Educational Research ED 503 course for graduate students.

    Dr. Hogrebe directed the St. Louis Regional Database Project that compiled data and research about K-12 scientific attainment and other educational indicators. He also served as a research and statistical analyst for the NSF Math and Science Partnership grant program at Washington University.

    His interests include research and evaluation methodologies in applied settings, education in the STEM fields, diversity issues, and using geographic information systems (GIS) to give geospatial perspective to education data. His signature research projects integrate data from different sources into GIS technologies that help researchers understand and communicate complex spatial relationships. The GIS approach to studying and presenting data recognizes the role of place in shaping the educational context and helps educational researchers communicate these relationships more effectively with school officials, policy-makers, community leaders, teachers, and parents. He has taught a number of professional development courses at AERA on the use of GIS for educational researchers.
