Happy New Year!

As some of you are aware, as of January 1, 2020 Practical Assessment, Research and Evaluation (PARE) has a new home at the Center for Educational Assessment, University of Massachusetts Amherst College of Education under the competent leadership of new co-editors, Drs. April Zenisky and Lisa Keller.

When I first conceived of and developed the journal with Bill Schafer 20 years ago, it was a novel idea and the first of its kind---an online resource for practical information on educational assessment. He and I could not envision its later fame and broad-reaching uses. Now PARE will be very well served and evolve via the current IT expertises of staff at the Computer-Based Testing Initiatives and the Center for Educational Assessment at UMass-Amherst.

I am humbled by the journal's success, a little sad at this juncture, thankful for everyone's assistance, support and and commentary over these 20 past years, and am now ready to watch the early work of so many, go forward and thrive.

All the best to everyone. Happy searching and researching!
