Mindy Kornhaber is an associate professor at Penn State. She joined the faculty in 2001 after
serving as a researcher at Harvard University for more than a decade, where she collaborated with
Howard Gardner. Her work draws equally from the fields of social policy and hum an development
and focuses on two related questions: How do institutions and the policies surrounding them
enhance or impede the development of individual potential? How can individual potential be
developed both to a high level and on an equitable basis?
For the past several years, she has been concerned with testing policies and their influence on educational equity and students' intellectual
development. She is also concerned with assessment, educational equity, how theories of
intelligence influence school practice, and school reform.
