NCMEntoring

The Fifth Annual NCMEntoring Program


We’re excited to announce the fifth annual NCMEntoring Program! Launched during the 2016 annual meeting, the NCMEntoring Program aims to support the transition of graduate student members and recent graduate members from their graduate programs to professional careers. Early professionals (mentees) are paired with members (mentors) experienced in NCME-related fields: assessment, evaluation, and other aspects of educational measurement. This experience will offer the opportunity for mentees to explore possible career paths and ask questions from an experienced NCME member and for mentors to support the development of potential colleagues and contribute to the field. 
 
Each year, over 100 NCME members have participated in the NCMEntoring program.  Feedback from participants was very positive. Don’t miss out on this membership benefit!
