Mission Fund Committee Update (December 2019)

By Megan Welsh posted 12-20-2019 10:02


The NCME Mission Fund was established to provide a means for donors to express their tangible support for NCME’s mission to advance the science and practice of measurement in education, and to provide individuals and organizations with financial support for projects, research, and travel that address this mission directly. This year the Mission Fund provided grants for several special initiatives designed to promote a broader understanding of high quality assessment practices and appropriate test use among diverse groups of assessment stakeholders. Funded project summaries can be found here.


We are also continuing our “Honor a Mentor” fundraising program! 


The Honor a Mentor program is an opportunity for NCME members to acknowledge those who have played pivotal roles in our academic and professional development -- while supporting projects designed to promote public engagement in measurement topics, and conference attendance for junior scholars.  All contributions made in honor of our mentors will directly support NCME Mission Fund projects.  


To see the tributes made in honor of our NCME colleagues, and to share a tribute in honor of your mentor while making a donation of any size, please visit the Honor a Mentor page on the NCME website, which is located under the "About" tab.
