Our goal is to equip you with cutting-edge research skills, creative educational vision, social responsibility and sufficient experience in application of your skills and knowledge to achieve professional competence. Graduates with RMS degrees hold professional positions at testing companies, universities, school districts and state agencies, among others. Admission to the master's program requires a BA or BS degree. Admission to the doctoral program requires a MA degree.
RMS foundations include research methods, measurement and statistics. Research methods include classical quantitative methods as well as qualitative methods. Students can elect to emphasize evaluation or a content area within or outside of education as a minor.
