The Future of NCME--Views of the Membership.
Jaeger, Richard M.; Camp, Joanna B.
To determine members' satisfaction with the National Council on Measurement in Education (NCME), a survey of NCME members was developed and administered to obtain members' judgments about: (1) the purposes of the NCME as an organization; (2) NCME's major activities; (3) members' personal involvement in NCME activities; (4) the NCME Annual Meeting; (5) NCME's professional development activities; (6) NCME publications; (7) member interest in participating in the governing of the NCME; (8) the organizational structure, election procedures, and committee activities of the NCME; and (9) financial operations of the NCME. A mailed survey was sent during the fall and winter of 1989 to 484 randomly selected members, for a usable response rate of 71.5% (346 members). Members were generally satisfied with the organization's purposes and activities, but relatively few members were active participants in annual meetings. Members were satisfied with the quality of NCME publications, although other resources of the organization were not used as often. Members were somewhat pleased with organizational structure and practices and the existing budget allocations. Thirty-two graphs and two tables illustrate member response. Four appendices contain the questionnaire and follow-up material. (SLD)
