Caterina recently completed a Master of Arts degree in Measurement and Evaluation from OISE/University of Toronto. Her program focus was on survey methodology and in particular the instrumentation/test construction, attitude/satisfaction rating scales, and survey response psychology. Her interests in patient satisfaction and outcomes evaluation resulted in a thesis dissertation empirically examining Likert rating scale design strategies for dealing with low response variability and high satisfaction rates in a positive patient respondent population.
