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.
