He is currently a Research Professor at the University of Virginia, Senior Research Scientist at the Devereux Center for Resilient Children, and Emeritus Professor of Psychology at George Mason University.
Dr. Naglieri has developed many tests used by psychologists and educators such as the Naglieri Nonverbal Ability Test, the Cognitive Assessment System, Autism Spectrum Rating Scale, Devereux Student Strength Assessment, Comprehensive Executive Function Inventory, and forthcoming Naglieri Tests of General Ability– Verbal, Quantitative and Nonverbal. He is widely known for his efforts to increase participation of traditionally under-represented students in gifted education.

Dr. Naglieri discusses the Army Mental Tests (Yoakum & Yerkes, 1920) and how the authors understood that developing test questions that required knowledge was a social justice issue.
