Interns within the Office of Assessment, Standards and Curriculum will be engaged in both the day-to-day operations of test development and administration, as well as the research agenda necessary to promote quality in testing programs. This will include both qualitative and quantitative research and presenting the findings to the supervisor.
The intern will have the opportunity to work directly with Department psychometricians and educational research staff as well as receive feedback on projects that have been assigned to them independently. The intern will also be able to attend meetings with Department contractors thus increasing their professional network and learning about additional career opportunities.
Qualified candidates should email a cover letter, resume, transcript (student copy is acceptable), and completed internship application to firstname.lastname@example.org Please include the Assignment Number (P12-31) in the subject line of your email to reference this assignment.
