AERI Home > Mission


The mission of AERI is to promote meaningful use of assessment and evaluation information in practice and policy contexts, internationally and across disciplines, with education as our primary field of study.

Through its four activity strands--conferences and forums, institutes, sponsored research and evaluation projects, and publications/policy briefs--AERI strives to:

  • Create new knowledge in relevant assessment and evaluation areas
  • Make assessment and evaluation information meaningful and user-accessible
  • Disseminate knowledge in critical assessment and evaluation topics to technical and non-technical audiences
  • Build organizational capacity in assessment and evaluation areas in the U.S. and overseas.

Our work is guided by a philosophy of collaborative learning, stakeholder-orientation, and the use of participatory approaches in providing technical support/services in assessment and evaluation.
