About ATP

ATP is the global voice for the testing and assessment industry.

When you join ATP, you join a community that is dedicated to advancing equity, integrity, and learning.

ATP is the only organization in existence today that advocates for the assessment industry in all its forms and uses. ATP monitors laws and regulations around the globe that impact the industry and provides guidance on how to navigate challenges.

ATP originated in the early ‘90’s, as a non-profit Trade Association, to address issues of copyright and to promote the concept of professionally validated tests and assessments.

Today, amid rapidly changing technology and exponential shifts in how we work and learn, we find ourselves addressing a myriad of challenges from test security to data privacy, to artificial intelligence.

The primary reasons that industry leaders give for joining ATP is for networking, information sharing, and facing industry challenges as a collective voice.

But they will also tell you…sometimes it’s not all in what you get, but also in what you give.

Your support of ATP allows the organization to continue to provide:

  • high-level educational and networking events
  • advocacy for policies and regulations that allow testing and assessment organizations to flourish
  • a collective voice for the test publishing/assessment services industry in the media/ government/ industry/ education/ healthcare and the public
  • the ability to be a watchdog and a touchstone for those who participate in, and rely on, the assessment industry.
