Department Mission:

We advance creative approaches to important measurement, evaluation, and research problems in education and other social science fields, contributing to national and international efforts to solve critical problems in a diverse global community. We provide students with the theoretical and applied skills to engage in reflective social inquiry and to become research and evaluation leaders in their professional fields.

Academic Programs:

We offer two types of master’s degrees, a Ph.D. degree, and certification. Our programs integrate the study of state-of-the art research methodology, applied statistics, measurement and evaluation with a research focus on major contemporary education policy issues. Students are prepared to make original and substantive contributions to the fields of measurement, evaluation, and statistics.

New Offerings:

In Fall 2015, the ERME Program expanded its offerings to include a new M.S. degree in Applied Statistics and Psychometrics, as well as a course of study that leads to a certificate in Institutional Research. Read more about these programs.
