"At ARC we measure our success one survey at a time."

About Us

The Assessment Resource Center (ARC) is an assessment and educational services enterprise unit in the College of Education at the University of Missouri in Columbia, Missouri. ARC provides achievement and ability testing materials, survey materials, and scoring services to local and state educational agencies across the United States. Our organization develops, produces, evaluates and reports the results of tests, surveys, and other data-gathering instruments employed in student outcomes assessment. ARC also provides program evaluation, qualitative and quantitative research, and professional certification and licensure services to various organizations.


We have served Missouri’s educational community since the early 1930s, when it was established to serve Missouri’s public schools. ARC continues to be integrally involved in P-20 assessment throughout Missouri and other states, providing achievement and ability testing materials, survey materials, and scoring services to local and state educational agencies.

 

ARC has specifically served Missouri’s Department of Elementary & Secondary Education (MoDESE) on a number of assessment and evaluation projects, including the End-of-Course Assessments for secondary school students (as a subcontractor to Riverside Publishing), the Missouri Assessment Program-Alternate (MAP-A), and the Missouri Guidance Planning Surveys (MOGPS).
