Quality and Fairness
ETS is committed to the highest standards of quality and fairness. We invest substantial time and resources in reviewing every test and every test question, making sure that each adheres to our stringent fairness guidelines.
Every member of the ETS staff responsible for writing and reviewing test questions undergoes extensive training in our fairness review process. Our dedication to fairness and equity in testing is embodied in these publications:
- ETS Standards for Quality and Fairness
