James Madison University

Welcome from the Director

As Director the Assessment and Measurement PhD program at James Madison University, and on behalf of our faculty, students, and alumni,  I thank you for your interest in our program. Our goal is to prepare students for careers as assessment professionals and psychometricians working in testing organizations, universities, and school systems; as faculty members in assessment and quantitative methods; and as quantitative research professionals working in governmental, non-profit, and for-profit organizations.

The faculty in our program are proud of our reputation for excellence in advising and instruction, for our combination of classroom instruction with hands-on training in measurement and assessment, and for the supportive atmosphere of our program. We hope you will take time to view some of the videos made by Assessment and Measurement students, alumni, and faculty to learn more about our program

Please feel free to contact me if you would like further information on our program. I look forward to hearing from you.
