About the Program

JMU | Certificate | Online – As a leader in assessment, JMU’s Center for Assessment and Research Studies and the faculty members of the Assessment and Measurement Ph.D. program receive frequent requests for trainings, workshops and presentations on assessment practice by institutions and individuals who are trying to meet accreditation and accountability demands. This certificate is designed to meet that need by assisting institutions in developing their own expertise while recognizing that busy assessment practitioners desire professional development that fits into their busy lives.

This online certificate program will provide you with the most up-to-date information about assessment practice in higher education and help you develop skills to apply that knowledge at your institution.

JMU’s Higher Education Assessment Specialist graduate certificate program offers professional development and certification for those wishing to engage in assessment practice at institutions of higher education. All coursework is delivered entirely online, making it convenient for your busy schedule.
