The Programmer will manage large Army data assets using SAS array and structured query languages. Using primarily SAS (Enterprise Miner) and related modeling software (Mplus), the Programmer will conduct statistical analyses employing basic descriptive and inferential techniques. The Programmer will assist in interpreting statistical output, communicating analyses and findings to project members and senior scientists, preparing tables and figures, and drafting results sections for peer review journal articles and technical reports. Duties will include obtaining, translating, and preparing codebooks, preparing detailed lists of data elements, coordinating files (project logs), and tracking analyses. The Programmer will work in Monterey, CA and travel for collaboration with senior scientists.

Qualifications:

    Summer Internship in Psychometrics (2 Positions): College Board - Newtown, PA

    Location: Newtown, PA
    Posted: January 30, 2014
    Deadline: Feb. 14, 2014, at 5 p.m. EST
    Compensation: $8,320 Spans 8 weeks, starting on July 1st and ending on August 26TH, with an expected weekly full time workload (40 hours per week)
    Click here to view full job posting  

    Description: Interns will work with two College Board mentors on a specific project in the area of psychometrics. Possible topics include:

    Estimating vertical scale drift due to repetitious horizontal equating
    When vertical scales are established, specific attributes of the scale, given the target population, are achieved by preserving desired measurement properties. As new forms are being introduced, the primary concern becomes the maintenance of the base scale over time. This may be achieved by equating new forms to prior ones and reporting final scale scores that are linked to the base scale (which was originally vertically scaled). The project will investigate both how to best quantify the drift in vertical scale attributes as well as what the relative impact and magnitude of the drift is when new forms are added periodically to the equating design without concrete built-in alignment to the vertical scale.

    Incorporating Principled Assessment Frameworks in Standard Setting
    The purpose of the planned research is to investigate the utility of incorporating the infrastructure of principled assessment frameworks (such as AE and ECD) in the practice of setting cut scores for high stakes examinations. In particular, construct maps (Wyse, 2014; Wilson, 2005) are tools that offer a way to visually represent the evidence required to demonstrate varying levels of proficiency with the knowledge and skills deemed important with direct reference to the intended score scale. There is a great deal of interest in determining how the practice of incorporating construct maps can add value to the traditional standard setting processes for tests at the College Board.

    Qualifications: 
    • Students must be eligible to be legally employed in the United States (citizens, green card holders, or international student with F1 visas; for international students please see below). 
    • Interns must be full time doctoral students at an accredited 4‐year university 
    • A strong preference will be made toward advanced students in the process of completing their dissertations 
    • Graduate students in psychometrics, measurement, quantitative & mathematical psychology, educational psychology, industrial- organizational psychology, statistics or related fields are invited to submit applications 
    • Students must be eligible to be legally employed in the United States (international F1 visa students please read details below) 
    • Experience with statistical software (SAS, SPSS, and/or R) is required and working knowledge of Classical Test and Item Response Theory are desired 
    For More Information: If you have any questions about this internship opportunity, you can contact r&dinternship@collegeboard.org.

    How to Apply: Please send a curriculum vitae (CV), short cover letter and unofficial university transcript(in this order) as one single pdf file to R&Dinternship@collegeboard.org by February 14th, 2014. Applicants will be informed about acceptances by March 14th, 2014. Please name your attachment as Last_First_CB_Internship.pdf (e.x.: Smith_Clara_CB_Internship.pdf).
