Saturday, April 15, 2023 – 4:40 – 6:10 pm CT

Recruitment and retention of minoritized measurement professionals is critical for the field of measurement to effectively represent multiple perspectives, drive the field for cultural responsiveness and address inequities in education. In this session we will (a) present findings from research studies focusing on the experiences of racially and ethnically minoritized women working in the field of educational measurement as well as (b) highlight systemic efforts to increase the representation of Black, Brown, and Indigenous (BBI) students into the field of educational measurement.

STATE OF THE FIELD: GENDER AND RACIAL EQUITY IN EDUCATIONAL MEASUREMENT

Saturday, April 15, 2023 – 9:50 – 11:20 am CT

National employment reports show that while the demographic makeup of the workforce is now trending more female and racially/ethnically diverse than ever before, workplace inequities still persist in influential and well-compensated positions. The past three decades of employment reports within the educational measurement field mirrors these findings, making us question, what factors are holding women back from achieving parity with men? To address this question, Women in Measurement, AERA, and NCME have partnered to produce a first-of-its-kind study on workplace equity in the educational measurement community. Our study is the first to examine intersecting marginalized identity groups (e.g., women of color) and the field’s perceptions of employment diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) practices. In this session, we will present our preliminary findings of a census survey administered to students and professionals affiliated with WIM, AERA, and NCME on key indicators including social identity, employment position, educational training, professional experiences, salary and perceptions of DEI.

MOVING TOWARDS AN EQUITABLE AND JUST PROFESSION: LESSONS LEARNED FROM THE FIELD

Thursday, April 13th, 2023  –  8:00 – 9:30 pm CT

Many scholars and advocates have justifiably critiqued the slow pace of the educational measurement field in addressing inequities especially as it relates to racism. After all, Edmund Gordon (1995) and others (e.g., Hood, 1998; Gould, 1981) have been writing about inequities in our field for more than 30 years. Currently, there are a number of efforts underway that aim to make educational assessment more equitable and just. This discussion session highlights efforts that are focusing on diversifying the pool of professionals who work in our field to reflect the population of test takers. More specifically, our session features the efforts of three organizations committed to improving the representation of women and people from marginalized communities in educational measurement. Each of the three organizations—The Center for Measurement Justice, Women in Measurement, and The Center for Assessment—are trying to address different aspects of this work, while navigating multiple challenges and gaining critical perspectives. This “organized discussion” will feature brief, introductory presentations by representatives of the three organizations and a facilitated, transparent discussion about our early successes and key, critical challenges we face as we work to scale our efforts.

CAREER TRANSITIONS – IN THE FIELD OF MEASUREMENT IN 2022

February 3, 2022

Forecasts for 2022 suggest this will be a year of ‘great resignation’, with many leaving their jobs for other opportunities. Such transitions may offer new and exciting pathways for growth and also feel a bit risky. Similarly, students on the verge of completing their graduate programs and looking ahead to the start of their careers in measurement face a range of options, each with its own set of pros and cons.

 

In this session, Dr. Ellen Forte will led a discussion among seasoned professionals who offered insights and suggestions for those considering career transitions. How should I compare my current and possible future options for my work satisfaction? For achieving my short- and long-term career goals? What does a ‘day in the life’ look like for an operational psychometrician? For an academic? For a mom on a career fast-track?
