TITLE: Trends in Graduate Admissions Measures (March 2013) APA CE or NASP CPD credit available (1 credit hour) LENGTH: 44 minutes ABSTRACT: Measurement is firmly placed in systems of teaching and learning, and to support those activities, plays a critical role in selection, particularly in higher education.
