Alicia Cascallar Award

The Alicia Cascallar Award for an Outstanding Paper by an Early Career Scholar has been established to honor Alicia’s professional commitment and accomplishments and to continue her practice of mentoring and encouraging promising new scholars in the area of educational measurement. The award will be given to an early career scholar for an outstanding paper presented at the Annual Meeting. A cash award of $1,000, a commemorative plaque, and a waiver of NCME conference fees for the following year will be provided as partial support for an early career member of NCME to travel to the annual meeting. The award will be presented at the NCME Annual Meeting.
