A Message from our President Amit Sevak.
We believe that through learning, people have the opportunity to make a difference in their lives and in the world — and that research, assessment and measurement have valuable roles in helping everyone chart their unique paths to new possibilities.
It was this very notion that brought members of the American Council on Education, the Carnegie Foundation for the Advancement of Teaching and the College Entrance Examination Board together to form ETS in 1947. They felt that an independent, nonprofit organization devoted to educational research and assessment could expand opportunities for learners of all income and social status levels through more informed, objective methods for evaluation.
The commitment to fairness that inspired our creation lives on today through our mission to advance quality and equity in education worldwide. Our mission informs the core values of equity and opportunity, quality, integrity and social responsibility that are the basis of our decisions and behavior — and it is brought to life every day by the dedicated work of our employees.
Since our founding, we have been on a journey with students, educators, partner organizations and others within the learning ecosystem to create a world where all people can discover what’s possible through education. Now more than ever, we are proud that our research, products and services provide measurement data and innovation that help individuals to see and take the next step forward in their education or career — just as we have for the last 70+ years.
Each year, we develop, administer and score more than 50 million tests — including the TOEFL®, TOEIC®, GRE® and Praxis® tests — in more than 180 countries at more than 9,000 locations.
But we are so much more than the tests we deliver.
With our mission to advance quality and equity in education, we deliver groundbreaking research and learning solutions to help students, educators, schools, businesses and governments understand what’s possible and identify the steps to get there.
All of our products and services – including individual test questions, assessments, instructional materials and publications – are formally evaluated during development to help ensure that they:
In addition, every member of the ETS staff responsible for writing and reviewing test questions undergoes extensive training in our fairness review process. Our commitment to fairness helps distinguish ETS from other assessment companies.
We are dedicated to bettering our communities and it makes up a significant part of how we work together towards achieving our vision.
ETS supports fair and equal access to educational, learning and career opportunities for all.
We strive for the highest standards of quality in delivering valid, reliable, timely and accurate information and service to all our affiliates.
We always hold true to our commitment of doing the right things, the right way — for everyone, everytime.
