Ball State's Department of Educational Psychology ranks ninth in the nation among American Psychological Association (APA)-accredited school psychology training programs with the highest number of median faculty publications from 2000-05.   

The rankings were established from data collected through independent research at the University of Minnesota. The study examined the number of publications by 291 individual faculty members from 56 APA-accredited school psychology programs, and the results were then reported in "The School Psychologist", a newsletter published by the APA.

"These faculty members are leaders in their discipline, and this study affirms their excellence in scholarship," said Roy Weaver, dean of Teachers College. "We are proud of their work and dedication and this kind of recognition helps set us apart from other institutions."
