New England Educational Assessment Network (NEean) Board Approves New Membership Tiers for 2021-22
At its most recent meeting, NEean’s board of directors voted unanimously to approve a Membership Committee proposal, establishing several new tiers of membership. One of the new levels of membership is designed specifically for graduate students, reducing the annual cost of membership to $25 so as to expand the knowledge and scope of readiness to lead assessment initiatives. The second new membership level is an institutional one that enables an institution of higher education to hold four (or eight) annual memberships at a cost of $300 (or $600) per annum. This form of membership recognizes that institutions of higher education often experience change over time among the personnel working on assessment initiatives. Given these regular transitions, this level of membership is designed to provide a cost-savings to institutions. And, in its ongoing commitment to increase the diversity, equity and inclusion of under-represented and excluded groups in all aspects of work in higher education, including assessment, the NEean board heralded the Membership Committee’s proposal to establish a 25% discount for both individual and institutional memberships from federally-recognized Minority-Serving Institutions.
Please consider joining now at one of the following five levels of membership:
The New England Educational Assessment Network was founded in 1995 by a group of higher education professionals interested in creating a regional network to support the exchange of ideas related to assessment. Our mission is to enhance student learning and development by promoting and supporting evidence-based assessment.
Member benefits include free registration to NEean webinars, discounts to NEean in-person events, a subscription to the Journal of Assessment and Institutional Effectiveness (JAIE), and access to our library of materials from past events, webinars, and recorded sessions (under the Member Materials tab).
