Educational Measurement: Issues and Practice
ISSN (printed): 0731-1745. ISSN (electronic): 1745-3992.
Educational Measurement: Issues and Practice (EM:IP) publishes articles that illuminate issues in educational measurement and inform the practice of educational measurement. EM:IP is aimed at practitioners and users of tests and includes information about proven practices in testing, news of interest to the educational measurement community, and organizational news of the National Council on Measurement in Education. Not as technical as its companion, the Journal of Educational Measurement, EM:IP addresses a broad public that includes NCME members, school personnel, other professional educators, legislators, and interested citizens. Its primary purpose is to promote a better understanding of and reasoned debate on timely measurement issues of practical importance to educators and the public. EM:IP is a vehicle for improved communication among NCME members, and between NCME members and others concerned with educational measurement issues and practices. EM:IP seeks manuscripts that deal with measurement issues of concern to practitioners and academics, applications of measurement techniques in educational settings, and exemplary practices. Examples of manuscripts appropriate for EM:IP include those dealing with specific measurement techniques for various educational objectives or controversial measurement issues; surveys of practices and changes in practices; and public critiques of testing and test use.
