Buros Center for Testing and ITC
The Buros Center for Testing has a long history of working with the International Test Commission and sponsoring ITC Conferences. Our mission is to improve the science and practice of testing and assessment. We invite you to explore our website as well as the digital resources for research and educational purposes below.
Social and Emotional Learning Assessment Technical Guidebook
The Social and Emotional Learning Assessment Technical Guidebook is a user-friendly, technical guidebook for educators involved in selecting and overseeing the use of SEL assessments with students in PreK through Grade 12. The result are three guides that provide steps and resources for identifying an SEL assessment, questions to ask when evaluating the measurement quality of an SEL assessment, and recommendations for appropriately using an SEL assessment once a high quality measure has been identified. We encourage educators to review, share, and apply these guides when engaging in the selection and use of SEL assessment.
Mental Measurements Yearbook Instructional Modules
The Buros Center for Testing requested proposals that provide examples of how instructors of graduate and undergraduate courses use the Mental Measurements Yearbook (MMY) to teach students to understand and evaluate measurement fundamentals and identify and select high-quality tests and assessments. Watch short videos by a variety of instructors and access relevant supplemental course information and materials.
Videos on Demand
Our Video Library provides on-demand access to informative talks from key experts in testing, measurement, and assessment topics. For each video, you will find information regarding running time, title, abstract, learning objectives, and presenter biography.
