About Us

The Center for Assessment, short for The National Center for the Improvement of Educational Assessment, Inc. (NCIEA), was founded to address the changes currently underway in assessment and accountability in the United States. The Center’s mission is to contribute to improved student achievement through enhanced practices in educational assessment and accountability. We carry out our mission by working with states and other educational agencies to design and implement effective assessment and accountability policies and programs.
