This report summarizes the two-year trend of decision times for Educational Measurement: Issues and Practice and the Journal of Educational Measurement. The NCME Publications Committee regularly reviews this information as well as the NCME Board of Directors. The first part of this report is for EMIP, and the second part is for JEM. This information is provided to the NCME membership to highlight the efforts of the journal Editors, Editorial Boards, and reviewers.
