About_Us

 
The Board on Testing and Assessment was created in 1993 to assist policymakers and the public by providing scientific expertise around critical issues of testing and assessment in education and the workplace. BOTA’s fundamental role was to provide guidance about the technical qualities of tests and assessments and the consequences of their use.  BOTA included members from a range of disciplines relevant to testing and assessment, including psychology, statistics, education, economics, law, sociology, and political science, as well as practitioners with experience in test use.
