Program Description:

The Master's of Education in Measurement, Evaluation, Statistics, and Assessment (MESA) program will help address the current industry-wide shortage of individuals capable of functioning effectively in educational research and applied settings by offering rigorous training in quantitative and qualitative methodologies. The program will prepare individuals for careers working in academic institutions, state and federal agencies, school districts, and the testing industry (e.g., licensure and certification boards, private and not-for-profit testing organizations). The program also prepares those individuals who may eventually seek doctoral studies in a MESA area. Faculty members associated with MESA have a broad range of experiences and expertise to address virtually every aspect of the available job markets.


The University of Illinois at Chicago is accredited by the Higher Learning Commission (HLC) of the North Central Association of Colleges and Schools (NCA). The MEd in MESA online program is also approved by the Illinois Board of Higher Education (IBHE).
