UC Merced graduate student Ashley Metzger
Sociology graduate student

Ashley is a Sociology doctoral student who earned both her B.A. in Psychology and M.A. in Sociology from the University of California, Merced. Ashley’s work focuses on perceptions of ADHD within the classroom. More specifically, her previous research explores the impact that the ADHD diagnosis plays on teacher’s perceptions of diagnosed students’ academic achievement. She is currently working to expand upon this previous research to include diagnosed students’ track placement to understand how track placement may influence both students’ and teachers’ descriptions of the ADHD diagnosis. Her overall interests include educational inequalities, developmental disabilities, labeling theory, social psychology, as well as perceptions. Ashley has also served as the Sociology Graduate Student Committee President for the past 2 years.
