About

Muhammad Qadeer Haider earned his Ph.D. in Curriculum and Instruction (majoring in Mathematics Education) from Florida State University. He also holds an M.S. in Computer Science from Western Illinois University, Macomb, IL, and an M.Sc. in Mathematics from the University of Sargodha, Pakistan. Overall, he has more than eleven years of teaching experience (mathematics and computer science) in three countries: Pakistan, Qatar, and the United States.

Qadeer has developed and validated a reliable assessment tool to measure students' procedural and conceptual understanding of introductory linear algebra concepts as part of his doctoral dissertation. During his doctoral program, Qadeer also worked on two NSF-funded projects: Teaching Inquiry-Oriented Mathematics: Establishing Support (TIMES) and Computer Science Integrated with Mathematics in Middle Schools (CSIMMS). For TIMES and CSIMMS projects, Qadeer organized and conducted summer workshops and developed assessment tools.

Qadeer is a Research and Assessment Coordinator (STEM+C) at RME, where he is currently working on the NSF-funded MMaRS project to support the project's research work as a quantitative researcher. Specifically, Qadeer works on cognitive interviews, assessment validation, and quantitative analysis of the assessment data.
