kimberly-farmer-287677-unsplash.jpgNCME is greatly concerned about the recently revealed misuses of testing in the college admissions process. These flagrant violations of testing standards undermine fairness for all college applicants. NCME has released a Position Statement on Test Security that emphasizes the need for strict security practices in order to protect the integrity of test scores.

Read the Position Statement
The National Council on Measurement in Education (NCME) is a professional organization for individuals involved in assessment, evaluation, testing, and other aspects of educational measurement. During the past 20 years, the NCME membership has become more diverse, broadening the scope of the organization’s vision. Service to communities and ensuring that assessment is fair and equitable for all students have become essential elements of NCME’s mission and purposes.
