AIR provides support for the Program for International Assessment of Adult Competencies. PIAAC is a cyclical, large-scale, direct household assessment conducted by the National Center for Education Statistics (NCES) under the auspices of the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD).
AIR’s work includes formative, summative, diagnostic, and international assessment, and is used to measure student or system performance.
AIR offers a full range of assessment services, collaborating with our state and district clients, to develop and deploy customized, criterion-referenced assessment programs to help students learn, teachers teach, and parents know what is happening at school. It is also used for accountability at the school or district level.
AIR also plays a strong role in shaping education assessment and evaluation in developing countries.
Our evaluation work involves carefully collecting information about a project or program in order to assess effectiveness and make decisions.
