As early as 2003, graduates of DLSU-Manila’s Institute for Educational Measurement, Evaluation, and Statistics (IEMES) have planned on formally putting up a professional organization for measurement experts.  But only after six years since the last batch (2002) graduated were we finally able to realize our goal.

This August 6-7, 2008, the First National Conference on Educational Measurement and Evaluation will be held at DLSU-College of St. Benilde Hotel, with the theme “Developing a Culture of Assessment in Learning Institutions.”  Truly, this is a momentous occasion for us graduates of the MS Educational Measurement and Evaluation program of DLSU and Center for Educational Measurement (CEM).  I think it is high time that we measurement experts be recognized in academic circles for our invaluable contributions to education.

This will be the first time I’m attending a national conference – and my first time also to present an original research work.  I not only look forward to the intellectual exchange that will surely take place, but I also am excited to see my classmates whom I have not seen for the past six years.  I look forward to reminiscing about our escapades during those 14 months we were together.  I look forward to renewing old friendships and to building networks with those who speak the language of measurement.
