Program areas at Act

Education assessment program - Act's education assessment program is designed and developed to inform individuals (and those helping them) about the knowledge and skills needed for success in education and eventually career. Information resulting from the administration of the assessments enable individuals to prepare themselves for a next level of education and/or training. The assessments provide educators and trainers with information useful in guiding their teaching and instruction. Collectively, data resulting from the administration of the assessments facilitates research on effective educational practices of value to national, state and local educators and policy makers.

Workforce development assessment program - Act's workforce development assessment program is complementary of its education assessment program in that it focuses on helping individuals to acquire the skills that they need for success in the workplace. The program is a component part of the overall education process and helps individuals to understand the skills they will need to be ready for workplace related education and training programs. The assessments are used widely by educators and trainers to prescribe and provide instructional interventions for those individuals. Collectively, data resulting from the administration of the assessments enables research on national, state, and regional skill gaps in the labor pool and facilitates decisions and strategies for addressing them.
