Welcome to the ITEMS Portal!

The ITEMS portal is your entry point into a world of learning around core educational measurement concepts. ITEMS modules are its centerpiece, which are relatively short self-contained lessons with various supporting resources that support self-guided learning as well as professional instruction. In addition, you can interact with other learners through the discussion function in each module to connect yourself to different micro-communities tailored to your learning needs.
