Skills for the Future Initiative

Through the Skills for the Future Initiative, the Carnegie Foundation and the Educational Testing Service (ETS) are proposing that the new currency of education should be based upon meaningful skills and accomplishments demonstrated through assessment.

To address this critical national challenge, the Carnegie Foundation has partnered with the Educational Testing Service to create a robust, scalable suite of assessment and analytic tools that captures the full range of skills required for American students to succeed in K-12, post-secondary education and beyond. Together we will build a richer, smarter system of assessment, one that recognizes core academic skills and a broad array of other essential competencies.
