Assessment and Evaluation Research Initiative
Department of Organization and Leadership
In 2007-08, AERI moved to the Department of Organization and Leadership and is now situated within the program of Social-Organizational Psychology. Professor Chatterji has served in the role of director since 2008. Between 2010-12, AERI revamped its mission and redirected its goals and activities to align more tightly with its new mission statement: Promoting meaningful use of assessment and evaluation information in practice and policy contexts.
Today, AERI pursues a more proactive agenda of knowledge creation, translation, dissemination and capacity building in the assessment and evaluation sciences. A driving element in AERI’s work today is the mobilization of knowledge to different audiences and stakeholders. Recent activities marking AERI’s new identity included the following.
- AERI held its Inaugural Conference and Institute on March, 2012: “Conversations on Validity”
- AERI’s second conference was held in December, 2013: “Testing Then and Now”
- AERI’s director co-facilitated its first national blog in March-May, 2014: “Assessing the Assessments”
