NCME Annual Meeting

Yesterday, NCME (National Council on Measurement in Education) started their annual meeting. NCME’s mission is among other things to “Advance the science of measurement in the field of education”, so the focus is not on mathematics education solely. There are, however several presentations that deal with mathematics in the program. Here are the ones that I could find:

  • Shelley Ragland, James Madison University, Christina Schneider, CTB/McGraw- Hill, Ching Ching Yap, University of South Carolina, Pamela Kaliski, James Madison University: The Effect of Classroom Assessment Professional Development on English Language Arts and Mathematics Student Achievement: Year 2 Results
