Texas Tech University

Research, Evaluation, Measurement, and Statistics Program

About the Program

The College of Education: Research, Evaluation, Measurement, & Statistics (REMS) PhD program is designed to prepare students for successful careers at leading educational institutions. Its goal is to provide training and experiences that enable graduates to become highly productive researchers and excellent educators. The program affords students opportunities to work closely with faculty on research projects and to develop their own research programs. The diverse expertise of the REMS faculty provides a research and learning environment that supports a wide range of interests.

The Research, Evaluation, Measurement, & Statistics (REMS) PhD program is a concentration area within the Department of Educational Psychology & Leadership at Texas Tech University. The program is guided by the standards of the American Psychological Association (APA), the American Educational Research Association (AERA), and sound professional judgment of experienced and caring faculty.

The REMS PhD program is designed to foster strong theoretical foundations and expertise in quantitative methodology and statistical techniques. Students are trained as critical thinkers that are capable of working independently and collaboratively on teams, to design/conduct empirical research; enhance measurement, apply cutting-edge statistical methods, develop/disseminate new techniques; and evaluate programs that influence policy.
