Dear NCME members,


We would like to announce the newly designed Measurement: Interdisciplinary Research and Perspectives journal!

We hope you find the articles interesting and informative. The focus of submitted articles that address important issues in the field may include, but are not limited to, one of the following areas: 

  • Advances in measurement applications in the social sciences, medicine, business, kinesiology, etc.;
  • Theoretical articles that give a new perspective on measurement research, and/or practice in measurement;
  • Applied measurement articles in various interdisciplinary fields of study;
  • Meta-analysis, meta-synthesis, summary, or systematic critique of a measurement topic;
  • A book review that covers an in-depth review of a current measurement textbook;
  • A comprehensive software review of a measurement software product, e.g., R package.

The numerous measurement topics can include, but are not limited to, the following:

  • Validity and Reliability issues conducted in a research study
  • Test security
  • Cognitive Diagnostic Modeling
  • Computer Adaptive Testing
  • Linking/Equating
  • Bayesian Measurement/Modeling
  • Differential Item Functioning
  • Classroom Assessment
  • Diagnostic Classification Models
  • Rating Scale Analysis/Models
  • Mokken Analysis
  • Structural Equation Modeling/Multi-level modeling
  • Generalizability Theory/Models 
  • Note: The Journal does not publish reliability and validity studies of specific tests or assessment instruments. Such analysis must be part of a larger applied measurement research article. There are software programs today that can be evaluated and presented in the journal. A few are:
  • MIRT
  • OpenBugs
  • Winsteps
  • Stan
  • Parscale
  • R packages

This journal provides content for social scientists with an interest in the study of measurement, its theory, and application; including psychometricians, psychologists, educational researchers, policy researchers, educational and psychological test developers, medical and public health professionals.
