Who we are
ETS Global B.V.
Educational Testing Service (ETS) is a non-profit organisation where teams are passionate about their mission to advance quality and equity in education for all people worldwide because they believe in the power of learning. ETS teams strive to provide innovative and meaningful measurement solutions that improve teaching and learning, expand educational opportunities, and inform policy.
An uncompromising commitment to quality
ETS develops, administers and scores more than 50 million tests annually — including the TOEFL® and TOEIC® tests, the GRE® General and Subject Tests and the Praxis® tests — in more than 180 countries, at more than 9 000 locations around the world.
In addition to assessments, ETS conducts educational research, analysis and policy studies and develops a variety of customised services and products for teacher certification, English language learning and elementary, secondary and post-secondary education.
The International Organization for Standardization (ISO) certification
ETS has been certified by the International Organization for Standardization (ISO) for meeting ISO standards for quality excellence.
ETS policies, procedures and systems were audited by third-party certification body DEKRA Certification, Inc., to be awarded the ISO certification. ETS also was evaluated on multiple quality management principles, which included a strong customer focus, the role of top management, the process approach and continual improvement.
The ISO certification shows that ETS complies with global standards for quality and does outstanding work in producing the highest quality products and services for individuals, parents, teachers, educational institutions, businesses and governments worldwide.
