Position Description: Educational Measurement and Assessment
The Stanford Graduate School of Education seeks to fill a tenure-track, open-rank faculty position in Educational
Measurement and Assessment. We welcome applications from scholars with expertise and an active and rigorous
research agenda in the area of educational measurement and assessment, broadly conceived. The ideal candidate will
be able to teach graduate-level courses in psychometrics and measurement, as well as courses on more focused topics
related to assessment development, use, or policy. The ideal candidate will have a research agenda that relates
measurement and assessment issues to issues of teaching, learning, and/or education policy. This might include, for
example, research on the measurement of classroom context and instructional practices; the measurement of noncognitive outcomes and skills; the development of assessment practices that take advantage of and are appropriate for
new curricula, technologies, data, and learning contexts; the design and uses of assessments as instruments of
educational policy; and other uses of assessment results to improve teaching, learning, and schools.
The appointment will be made in one or more of the Graduate School of Education’s three program areas—
Developmental and Psychological Studies; Curriculum and Teacher Education; or Social Sciences, Humanities and
Interdisciplinary Policy Studies. An affiliation with our program in Learning Sciences, Technology, and Design is also
possible. The GSE faculty represents considerable diversity in its theoretical, methodological, and substantive expertise
and interests. We seek a colleague who can work effectively within this multidisciplinary community. Stanford
University is an equal opportunity employer and is committed to increasing the diversity of its faculty. It welcomes
nominations of and applications from women and members of minority groups, as well as others who would bring

and phone numbers. The committee will request letters of recommendation and samples of publications from a small
