Program Description:

Develop the expertise to analyze fifth graders in a school district, all workers at a company, everyone taking a graduate entrance exam, or a sampling of patients in a counseling lab. Assessment, Testing, and Measurement (ATM) in Education combines statistical analysis, testing theory, the study of human behavior, educational measurement, and evaluation into the science of measuring educational/behavioral factors such as learning, preference, aptitude, and personality. Specialists in this field (psychometricians) design tests that collect empirical data and quantify the personal characteristics of individuals, comparing those results within or across populations. This 15-month program is designed for individuals who are entering or advancing in positions associated with assessment, testing, and measurement in diverse settings. The program offers some of the nation's premier graduate training in psychometric and statistical methods taught by faculty who are engaged in world-class research. Students are provided mentorship through all phases of the research process and become trained in modern analytical methods.
