Education Testing Service
The Education Testing Service (ETS) is a nonprofit organization whose mission is "to advance quality and equity in education by providing fair and valid assessments, research, and related services."  ETS was founded in 1947, "when the American Council on Education, the Carnegie Foundation for the Advancement of Teaching, and the College Entrance Examination Board contributed their testing programs, a portion of their assets, and key employees to form Educational Testing Service under the leadership of Henry Chauncey." 
According to the Department of Education's Office of Inspector General report on Department PR expenditures, ETS received $161,295 in 1999 - 2002, along with Ogilvy Public Relations Worldwide, "to collect clips of media coverage about the National Assessment of Educational Progress (NAEP) test and film footage of conferences." 
ETS has "more than 2,500 employees," at U.S. and international offices, including 1,100 with "training and expertise in education, psychology, statistics, psychometrics, computer sciences, sociology, and the humanities."
