This session highlights a new report, “State of the Field: Gender and Racial Equity in Educational Measurement,” to be released at the Annual Meeting. The listed participants are the co-authors of the report. It is the result of a collaborative initiative of the American Educational Research Association (AERA), the National Council on Measurement in Education (NCME), and Women in Measurement (WIM) aimed at understanding the current state of gender and racial equity within the educational measurement field. Based on a survey of professionals’ experiences and perceptions, the study documents disparities across racial and gender groups and offers recommendations for creating a more diverse, equitable, and inclusive profession.
