Assessment Practices and Training in Indonesia

The Center for Educational Assessment will be working with Professor James M. Royer of the UMass Psychology Department on a USAID project involved in enhancing the educational assessment skills in Indonesia. The goal of the project is to increase Indonesia's capacity in educational assessment expertise as part of their national educational improvement efforts. The project will entail training a selected group of Indonesians visiting UMass in advanced assessment topics. Professor Craig Wells from the Center will be directing the measurement training component for the project and he will be assisted by Professors Hambleton and Sireci, and several graduate students. In addition, Craig Wells traveled to Indonesia in the summers of 2007 and 2008 to prepare instructional modules and training development, while Jennifer Randall did the same in summer 2009.
