He was elected a member of the International Statistical Institute in , and a fellow of the British Academy in He was awarded an honorary doctorate by the Open University in Research interests There are four main foci of my research interests. The first is the use of statistical modelling techniques in the construction and analysis of educational tests. The implications of adopting such models have been explored in a series of papers since In a number of papers he has also explored the ideas of criterion referenced assessment, comparability of assessments and the interaction of assessment modes and the purposes of assessment. The second interest lies in the area of 'educational school effectiveness'. He has been involved in a number of longitudinal studies of 'value added indicators' for comparing institutions and the use of such indicators for school improvement purposes.

He has been involved in a number of longitudinal studies of 'value added indicators' for comparing institutions and the use of such indicators for school improvement purposes. The third research interest is in the methodology of multilevel modelling.

He has had research funding for this since and has supervised the production with Bill Browne and the late Jon Rasbash of a widely used software package MLwiN and made a number of theoretical developments.

The major text on multilevel modelling is his book 'Multilevel Statistical Models': 4th Edition, Wiley, Chichester.

In this connection, some recent work by Allen and Burgess appears to provide evidence that league tables can make useful predictions, but on close examination this evidence turns out to be weak and based upon a questionable analysis.
