Research & Policy

Driven by our mission of helping people achieve education and workplace success, ACT promotes effective education and workforce policy solutions at the national, state, and local levels. We provide policymakers with research-based insights to inform their education and workforce development policy decisions and we furnish educators and workforce development professionals with the tools they need to guide individuals along their education and career paths.

ACT is uniquely positioned to aid policymakers, practitioners, and researchers on a variety of education and workforce issues based on our more than 50 years of research. ACT is the only organization with decades of data showing individual performance relative to empirically derived standards of education and workplace achievements. We invite you to review our policy and research reports, briefs, and case studies concerning an array of important education and workforce development issues. We encourage you to sign up to receive regular insights from our reports on education and workforce development policy issues.
