Upcoming Meeting

2023 Meeting - Chicago, IL

April 12-15, 2023

We are pleased to announce that the 2023 National Council on Measurement in Education (NCME) Annual Meeting will take place April 12-15, with April 12 as the in-person training day. There will also be virtual presentations and training sessions that are being planned for the Week of March 27, 2023. 

Theme: Leveraging Measurement for Better Decisions

We do measurement for a reason, and we believe that reason is to collect data to inform decisions. Decisions that consider data from good measurement practices are better decisions than those that do not. Many aspects of measurement are under attack right now. Some criticisms seem justified; some do not. We do need to improve our processes and tools. But we also need to be advocates for the appropriate use and application of the tools of our profession. We can make using measurement and assessment data ‘cool’ again. And we should. How can we do this? By making improvements in our processes and products, by communicating more effectively how data can be a force for good, by ensuring our use of data is a force for good, by being more collaborative both within and outside NCME, and by continuing to challenge, prod, encourage, question and listen to each other.

Program Chairs: Dongmei Li, Wei Tao, and Alexis Oakley
