Thank you for considering The ITEA Journal of Test and Evaluation for your work. Please use these guidelines to facilitate publication of your article.
The International Test and Evaluation Association (ITEA) invites both members and nonmembers to submit manuscripts to the editor for publication in The ITEA Journal of Test and Evaluation. Papers within the full range of subjects of interest to the test and evaluation community are welcome. Submission of a paper will be taken to imply that it represents some original work not previously published. All papers are reviewed for originality, depth of treatment, significance, organization, interest, and clarity before acceptance for publication. Papers must be objective and completely free of advertising and commercialism. Avoid use of company and product names if possible.
The author is responsible for submitting original work and for the accuracy of all material provided. It is the author’s responsibility to inform ITEA if an article has been published previously or is being considered by another publication. ITEA reserves the right to copyright all published material. This does not prevent an author from republishing the material, provided proper copyright credit is given to The ITEA Journal of Test and Evaluation. A copyright agreement (http://itea.org/images/pdf/publications/copyrightagreement.pdf) is required from the authors of an article prior to ITEA review and editing of the article for publication. An exception to this copyright procedure is the case of articles authored by government officials on government time; such articles are not subject to U.S. copyright protection. However, the Authorization to Publish and Copyright Form must still be certified by the government author in Part B of the form.
Responsibility for government or employer clearance of articles, if required, lies with the author, prior to submission to The ITEA Journal of Test and Evaluation. A copy of the clearance statement should be furnished with the article.

The ITEA Journal of Test and Evaluation uses endnotes rather than footnotes. The chief differences between an endnote and a bibliographic entry are that, in an endnote, the author’s name is not reversed as it is in an alphabetically arranged bibliography, and punctuation between author’s name, title of the work, and facts of publication consists of commas and parentheses rather than periods, as in these examples:
Please Note: References containing incomplete endnote or bibliographic information will be referred back to the author for completion or edited out of manuscript.
Following publication, two complimentary copies of The ITEA Journal of Test and Evaluation issue that contains the manuscript are sent to the author. Authors are asked to provide an email address and a mailing address with manuscript submission. Manuscripts sent by disk and accepted for publication, including all associated artwork and/or illustrations, will not be returned unless specifically requested by the author. If returned, manuscripts and artwork will be in the condition that may have been altered due to the work of the editor and printer.
All material submitted for publication should be sent to:
