Global Partnerships: Center for Educational Assessment to assist with assessment practices and training in Indonesia

Map of Indonesia The Center for Educational Assessment at the University of Massachusetts Amherst 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 who will be identified soon. In addition, a REMP faculty member will travel to Indonesia in the summer of 2008 to prepare instructional modules and training development.
