NERA Mentoring Program Update

Katrina Roohr, Educational Testing Service

The application window to participate in the NERA Mentorship Program in 2020 as either a mentor or mentee has closed. We received many applications and would like to thank all mentors and mentees who signed up to participate. We will be notifying all mentors and mentees with their assignments in mid- to late-September. We are very excited about implementing the program this year. The mentoring program is an invaluable opportunity for professional development, career guidance, and research consultation.

This year’s mentoring program will be completely virtual and flexible in terms of scheduling. We are also strongly encouraging mentors and mentees to extend their interactions beyond the conference. We will be reaching out to those involved in the Mentoring Program throughout the next year to check-in and see how things are going. We also are hoping to get more feedback from mentors and mentees to find ways to best support these relationships moving forward.

If anyone has any questions about the NERA Mentoring Program, please feel free to reach out directly to Katrina Roohr ( or Tanesia Beverly (
