Welcome to the PARE homepage
Practical Assessment, Research & Evaluation (PARE) is an on-line journal providing access to refereed articles that can have a positive impact on assessment, research, evaluation, and teaching practice.
After 15 years of entirely volunteer stewardship, editorial work and expert technical review, PARE has grown to become the most widely utilized journal of its type in the field of education (see the 2015 PARE Factsheet). We are proud to announce that our success and diligence has been rewarded by esteemed professional sponsorship. While PARE principles and review will remain the same, its production is now made possible through the generous support of these well-known leaders in the field of measurement and education. Please click on the images, visit their websites, and take a moment to read descriptions of these important, inaugural sponsors. If your organization would like to be considered as a sponsor, please contact either Bill Schafer or Larry Rudner, our co-editors.
