The David O. McKay School of Education at BYU initiated a doctoral program in Educational Inquiry, Measurement & Evaluation (EIME) beginning in fall semester 2008. This program is designed to prepare graduates with a PhD degree who can work productively as researchers, evaluators, measurement and assessment specialists, or policy analysts in a variety of settings including universities, government agencies (e.g., local or regional school district offices, state offices of education, or federal education agencies), test development companies, or private research and development firms.

Four to six new doctorate students are admitted to this program each year at the beginning of fall semester. Those admitted are required to be enrolled as full-time resident students at BYU. Financial assistance is offered in tuition stipends, research assistantships (20 hour per week), and health benefits.
