Dr. Ye Tong is the Senior Vice President of Assessment Operations at the National Board of Medical Examiners, past president of NCME, longstanding member of NCME and AERA, and a founding member of Women in Measurement.

Moving forward, the Management Committee will work with Drs. Tong and De Los Reyes to select Joint Committee members. The Joint Committee will then engage in a multi-stage revision process, one that will ultimately make the revised Standards more timely, relevant, accessible, and therefore useful in today's context of educational and psychological testing.
