Fairness and Validity

With ETS assessments, you can be assured that the scores you receive present an accurate picture of a candidate’s knowledge and skills, without any bias. As part of our mission to help advance quality and equity in education by providing fair and valid assessments, we put our assessment questions through a rigorous review process.

ETS’s Fairness Review Guidelines are used in assessment development to minimize bias and other characteristics that might hinder some candidates from performing at levels that allow appropriate inferences about their relevant knowledge and skills.
