Call for Proposals for Individual Presentations, Coordinated Sessions, and Training Sessions

Annual Meeting of the National Council on Measurement in Education

Call for Proposals  - Deadline: August 1, 2015

The National Council on Measurement in Education (NCME) invites you to submit a proposal for presentations and sessions at its Annual Meeting, April 7-11, 2016 in Washington, DC. NCME will accept the submission of proposals through Saturday, August 1 at 11:59 PM PDT.


Please review the full NCME Call for Proposals prior to submitting your proposal.


The theme of the 2016 Annual Meeting is Foundations and Frontiers:  Advancing Educational Measurement for Research, Policy, and Practice.   This theme acknowledges the variety of stakeholders that use educational assessments, including educators, policy makers, and researchers. Stakeholder uses of educational assessments are diversifying and expanding with the advent of new measurement methods and new methods of data collection. In this shifting environment, innovation is necessary, yet foundational principles of measurement, especially the concepts of validity and reliability, have never been more important. In recognition of both measurement foundations and measurement frontiers, the program committee seeks a broad range of proposals, in particular those that concern:

·         Relevant approaches for improving the reliability of assessment scores and the

                   validity of their uses.

·         Novel methods of data collection and analysis.

·         The measurement and relevance of novel constructs related to education.

·         Novel applications and uses of educational assessment data. 

·         Understanding of problems posed by recent and future uses of test scores.

·         Solutions to these problems.

 On behalf of NCME, we are looking forward to the 78th Annual Meeting. With your help, we expect to have engaging, interactive, and stimulating sessions.

Be sure to submit your research and volunteer as a discussant and session chair for the Annual Meeting in Washington, DC, in 2016.

Andrew Ho and Matthew Johnson, Co-chairs, Annual Meeting Program Committee
