Colleagues,

The University of Illinois at Chicago is offering two online programs in 
research methodology and an online course titled Assessment for Teachers. 
The first program is an eight course MEd in Measurement, Evaluation, 
Statistics, and Assessment (MESA). See 
<http://education.uic.edu/mesaonline-med/>http://education.uic.edu/mesaonline-med/ 
for details. The second is an Educational Research Methodology (ERM) 
Certificate, which consists of a minimum of any three courses offered in 
the MESA online curriculum. Visit 
<http://education.uic.edu/erm/>http://education.uic.edu/erm/ for more 
information. Those interested in taking a course without entering a program 
can enroll as an Extramural Student.

See 
<http://education.uic.edu/mesaonline-med/coursedescriptions.cfm>http://education.uic.edu//mesaonline-med/coursedescriptions.cfm 
for course descriptions and 
<http://education.uic.edu/mesaonline-med/onlineschedule.cfm>http://education.uic.edu//mesaonline-med/onlineschedule.cfm 
for when courses are offered.

  Students enrolled in these online courses come from a variety of 
backgrounds:

1) those already holding a PhD or EdD in a non-MESA field wanting to 
increase their research skills,

2) those who eventually wish to pursue doctoral studies in a MESA area,

3) current PhD and EdD students in a non-MESA field wanting to increase 
their research skills and career opportunities,

4) those who want to acquire the knowledge and technical skills needed for 
entry-level positions in academic institutions, state and federal agencies, 
school districts, and the testing and evaluation industry (e.g., licensure 
and certification boards, private and not-for-profit testing 
organizations), and

5) students enrolled in other graduate programs needing coursework they can 
transfer into their current degree program.

  We would appreciate if you would pass along this information to U.S. and 
international students, co-workers, and any other colleagues that may find 
these online programs and courses useful.
