The graduate program in Research Methods, Measurement, and Evaluation (RMME) leads to an M.A. or Ph.D degree in Educational Psychology. The program is designed for educators and practitioners who wish to become more knowledgeable about measurement, evaluation and assessment practices in schools and other formal or informal educational settings. We also offer a graduate certificate in program evaluation.

The Online Master’s Program is designed for educators and practitioners seeking to become more knowledgeable about RMME practices. Further, it is an ideal graduate degree for recent bachelor’s graduates having entered, or for those entering, the workforce, who are interested in maintaining the option to move into the research side of the education realm.

The Master’s program emphasizes the application of measurement, assessment, and evaluation theory and procedures. We encourage students to supplement their RMME coursework with courses in other discipline areas that best suit their individual goals and objectives.

The Ph.D. program in Research Methods, Measurement, and Evaluation integrates theory and practice to promote the scientific uses of measurement within the field of education and related disciplines. Coursework focuses on current and emerging topics including instrument development, classical and modern measurement theory and applications, item response theory, causal inference, multivariate statistical techniques, multilevel modeling, sampling methodology, and educational assessment.

See the RMME Handbook for more information about our graduate degree programs.
