The Linn Award recognizes the important contributions of Robert L. Linn to educational measurement and assessment policy. This annual award honors a scholar whose work bridges educational measurement and some other significant area of research (e.g., assessment policy, learning theory, curriculum and instruction) and has resulted in a widespread positive impact on the field of educational measurement. These contributions may include theoretical or technical developments, conceptualizations of educational measurement issues that have enhanced public understanding of these issues, or innovative ideas that improve the validity and effectiveness of educational assessments.
