Educational Testing Service and Farragut High School Take Top Honors in First Annual Learning Impact Award (LIA) Global Competition:

An Interview with Gary Driscoll




















For the past six decades, the Educational Testing Service, or ETS as it is perhaps better known, has strived to advance quality and equity in education by providing fair and valid assessments, research, and related services for all people worldwide. The non-profit organization also has been an active participant with the IMS Global Learning Consortium in establishing standards for the exchange of question and test items. IMS recently talked with Gary Driscoll, ETS' Director of Scoring, Reporting and Technology, and Aleeta Johnson, an English teacher with Farragut High School in Knoxville, Tennessee, which is one of the early users of ETS' CriterionSM online writing evaluation service.
ETS' Criterion service received the highest ranking in the 2007 Learning Impact Awards competition for its capacity to directly help students in a personal and measurable way and for the ease with which teachers can begin using it in the classroom.
