Parents, policymakers and employers are demanding greater accountability from schools and the highest level of professionalism from teachers. ETS helps educators meet these demands by providing a comprehensive suite of professional development products and services that assess and advance good teaching and school leadership.
Teacher Professional Development
Our Pathwise® series includes
- professional development workshops
- mentor training
- support materials
- advanced courses for experienced teachers
The Pathwise series also includes school leadership resources for superintendents, principals and other school leaders.
Teacher Licensure Programs
ETS offers teacher licensure programs to most states. These include The Praxis Series® assessments and the School Leadership Series.
Schools are increasingly using formative, or classroom, assessments to support instruction. Unlike summative, or end-of-course, assessments, classroom tests help teachers identify individual students' strengths and weaknesses and adjust their practice accordingly.
With ETS's Criterion® Online Writing Evaluation service, students work independently to develop their writing skills and receive instant holistic scores and diagnostic feedback on their writing.
English Language Learning and Assessment
Our English Language Learning and Assessment program provides research-based products and services that support nonnative speakers of English by encouraging learning, assessing progress and measuring proficiency.
