Ed.M. in Educational Statistics, Measurement, and Evaluation


Coordinator: Dr. Douglas Penfield (732-932-7496, ext. 8324; email: dougpen@rci.rutgers.edu)

The master's degree program in educational statistics, measurement, and evaluation (ESME) enables students to take a broad spectrum of courses within and outside the specialty area. The program does notrequire an extensive background in mathematics. An applicant for the program, however, should be comfortable in researching and solving educational and psychological problems using quantitative methods. Students who receive the Ed.M. are often employed as researchers or data analysts in the fields of social science research, educational testing, marketing research, or pharmaceutical research. The program is individually tailored to the student's needs, and attempts to provide maximum flexibility by encouraging students to pursue a minor area outside of the specialty. A total of 33 credit hours is required.
