Psychometric Internship

Due to the impact of COVID-19, the NCSBN summer internship program had been suspended. We are pleased to announce that the summer internship program for 2023 will be reinstated.

NCSBN is pleased to offer a summer internship program for advanced doctoral students in educational measurement or a related field. The program offers interns a chance to learn all aspects of operational work on an international CAT licensure examination. The interns will also be required to conduct research under the guidance of the NCSBN psychometric staff on topics related to the Next Generation NCLEX. Interns will gain practical experience working on issues related to the testing profession, CAT, and licensure and certification exams. We are looking for interested individuals with interests and expertise in polytomous item analysis, including drift and DIF analyses, computerized-adaptive testing, and current innovative methods for analyzing technology-enhanced items.

Please continue to check back with us as more detailed information will be announced in November 2022 about how to apply for this opportunity.
