There are plenty of reasons John Kranzler takes satisfaction in his most recent professional accomplishment — being named a University of Florida Research Foundation Professor.
Among other things, the prestigious professorship provides additional resources so Kranzler can carry on his ongoing research, which principally involves studying the nature, interpretation and integrity of intelligence quotient (IQ) tests, which Kranzler says many psychologists believe are one of psychology’s greatest contributions to society.
But the UFRF Professorship also is important to Kranzler for another reason.
“It’s just a great honor to be recognized for your work by your peers and the university,” says Kranzler, professor and director of School Psychology at the College of Education.
Kranzler has been on the college’s faculty since 1990, after he earned a Ph.D. in school psychology and human development at the University of California at Berkeley.
