NCMEmentoring

NCMEntoring Program

We’re excited to announce the 7th 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 offers mentees the opportunity to explore possible career paths and/or research interests and for mentors to support the development of potential colleagues and contribute to the field. 

Each year, over 100 NCME members participate in the NCMEntoring program and feedback from participants has been extremely positive. Don’t miss out on this fun and impactful membership benefit!

Mentors: If you are interested in promoting the success of future colleagues and meet the criteria below, please respond to the brief survey (link provided below).

  • You are an NCME member who will be attending the NCME conference (in-person or virtually) in 2022. 
  • You have at least two years of post-graduate work experience. 
  • You are willing to meet with an assigned mentee for approximately one hour during, or within two weeks following, the annual meeting. You may meet with your mentee in-person or virtually.

Mentees: If you would like the opportunity to meet with experienced professionals in your field, and you meet the criteria below, please respond to the brief survey (link provided below). 

  • You are an NCME member who will be attending the NCME conference (in-person or virtually) in 2022.
  • You are currently enrolled in an accredited Ph.D. or master’s program in a NCME-related field OR you have graduated from such a program within the past two years.

All interested mentors and mentees should respond to a brief survey at this link. Survey information will be used to pair mentors and mentees based on common career and/or research interests, based on mentee goals.  Participants will also have the option to be paired with someone of a similar race, ethnicity, and/or gender. 

Mentors and mentees may meet in-person or virtually, depending upon their plans for conference attendance. If meeting virtually, mentors and mentees should use their own teleconferencing platform to meet.  Those meeting in person at the conference event will be provided with information about designated meeting locations at the hotel.

The application deadline is March 21st, 2022. Sign up early to take advantage of this professional development opportunity!

This opportunity is organized by the NCME Membership Committee and sponsored by the NCME Board of Directors. For more information, contact Erika Landl (elandl@nciea.org)
