The graduate program in Research Methods, Measurement, and Evaluation (RMME) leads to an M.A. or Ph.D. degree in Educational Psychology with an area of concentration in Research Methods, Measurement, and Evaluation.  The program is designed for educators and other professionals who wish to develop expertise in quantitative research methodology, psychometrics, educational measurement, and/or program evaluation. We also offer a Graduate Certificate in Program Evaluation. Our graduates work in a variety of settings including higher education, testing companies, state departments of education, and research firms.

The 100% online Master’s Program is designed for professionals seeking to become more knowledgeable about research methods, measurement, and evaluation. Further, it is an ideal graduate degree for recent bachelor’s graduates having entered, or for those entering, the workforce, who are interested in developing expertise in research methods, quantitative analysis, measurement, and program evaluation.

The campus-based Master’s program emphasizes the application of quantitative research methods, measurement 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 (also campus-based) integrates theory and practice to promote the scientific uses of measurement and quantitative research methodology within education and the social and behavioral sciences. Coursework focuses on current and emerging topics including instrument development, classical and modern measurement theory and applications, item response theory, latent variable modeling, causal inference, multivariate statistical techniques, and multilevel modeling.
