Statistics, Measurement, Assessment, and Research Technology (SMART)
The M.S. degree program in SMART is designed to prepare individuals for work in research and assessment organizations in education, psychology, and related human services field, that place high value on quality of evidence, statistical analysis, assessment, and psychometrics, as well as the use of technology in producing evidence and informing policy. The eight-course-unit minimum curriculum makes it possible to complete all degree requirements in one academic year of full-time study, though part-time study is also an option. Studies leading to this degree include coursework, a highly-recommended research apprenticeship, and a written general examination.
The program provides understanding and skills in data collection, management, and processing; measurement theory and test construction; survey design; assessment strategies; and statistical analysis and reporting.
