Gain insights efficiently with Multistate Standard-Setting Studies
The ETS Multistate Standard-Setting Study process is a valuable way for decision makers to share and gain insight that can help inform their individual decisions.
Designed by ETS researchers, this approach convenes practitioner panels to recommend a passing score for states to consider. Multistate Standard-Setting Studies offer several benefits, including:
- freeing your state from recruiting panelists
- providing greater educator input for a passing score recommendation
- providing a more efficient process for transitioning your state from old to new tests
- enabling your state to maintain valuable control by setting your own passing score while offering practitioner judgments and documentation to inform that decision

ETS supports the periodic review of a state's assessment program to ensure that it satisfies the needs of the state. This short guide describes how some State Education Agencies (SEAs) and boards across the United States have undertaken these reviews and includes suggestions for how to frame the state's needs in order to elicit some of the most useful comparisons among assessment programs.
