In 1947, Henry Chauncey brought to life a concept first proposed by James Conant a decade earlier – that a single organization devoted to research and testing could "make fundamental contributions to the progress of education in the United States."
Nearly 60 years later this independent, nonprofit organization has expanded that objective to include learners worldwide. Today, ETS is known for its commitment to sound research, to advancing learning, and to increasing opportunities for all students.
The ETS heritage is rooted in the concepts and principles our founders believed in. And these concepts and principles guide us today.
At ETS, we are continuing a heritage of helping prepare each new generation.
Educational Testing Service (ETS) is a world leader in educational assessment with more than 50 years' experience in promoting effective teaching and learning. With a staff of 2,600 professionals — including educators, researchers, psychometricians, statisticians, and policy specialists — the organization is dedicated to serving individuals, educators, businesses, and government bodies in more than 180 countries.
The ETS Vision: To be recognized as the global leader in advancing quality and equity in learning every step of the way.
ETS's vision is to be recognized as the global leader in providing fair and valid assessments, research and related products and services to help individuals, parents, teachers, educational institutions, businesses, governments, countries, states and school districts, as well as measurement specialists and researchers.
The ETS Values: Listening. Learning. Leading.
ETS is driven by the core values of social responsibility, equity, opportunity and quality. We practice these values by listening to educators, parents and critics. We learn what students and the institutions they attend need. We lead in the development of products and services to help teachers teach, students learn, and parents measure the intellectual progress of their children.
