This lectureship is made possible by a generous endowment from Dr. Frank B. Womer, who served the School of Education as a professor of educational measurement for 30 years. Dr. Womer was staff director of the National Assessment for Educational Progress when it launched the first nationwide effort to assess student achievement in basic subjects. He also founded the annual Michigan School Testing Conference which continues to this day under the sponsorship of the School of Education. His gift reflects his abiding commitment to the School of Education and its role in improving the quality of education in a democratic society. He is happily still alive and participates with enthusiasm in each year’s lecture.
