NCME Book Series
Educational Measurement Applications & Assessments
NCME has established the NCME Educational Measurement and Assessment Book Series, which is intended to increase understanding and inform research-based educational measurement and assessment. Intended audiences include NCME members, graduate students in measurement and assessment, and professionals in related fields engaged in measurement and assessment (e.g., psychology, educational leadership, educational and learning policy, curriculum and instruction, learning sciences, and certification and licensure). The scope of the book series has been expanded to go beyond applications and include conceptual and theoretical work.

Call for proposal for future volumes
The NCME Book Series Editorial Board is soliciting ideas for additional edited volumes from the NCME membership.
The field of measurement is going through a disruption fueled by our societal context and technological advances. The current societal context – the unprecedented impact of COVID-19 on education and the society, heightened importance of equity and fairness- combined with the opportunities and challenges brought about by digital assessments require rethinking of the role of assessment and measurement. This includes how we design and develop assessments, what constitutes evidence in measurement models, and how we interpret and use assessment results. The NCME Educational Measurement and Assessment Book Series is intended to highlight key issues in measurement, help the field serve education in effective ways and is an important way that can help transform our field. The Book Series is looking for Editors to lead books on some of the following or related topics:
- Opportunities and challenges for assessment and measurement to help address disparities in educational outcomes
- Issues in digital assessments: interactivity, adaptivity, digital literacy, scaffolding
- At home testing
- Use of response processes in measurement models
- Integration of artificial intelligence in scoring of responses, item generation and other uses in assessment
- Comparability: Across modes of administration, task types, AI based scores and others, etc.
- Design and use of culturally responsive assessments
- Trade-offs of test-optional and other admissions criteria
