Your Work Makes a Difference

ACT team members are part of an organization dedicated to an important mission: Helping people achieve education and workplace success.

Everything we do contributes to this mission, including team member events, professional development resources, community outreach opportunities and solid benefit offerings. Helping team members achieve education and workplace success of their own advances the ACT mission on a daily basis.

You will work with a team of former educators and researchers to create K-12 science assessments products. The team collaborates to plan and review work, yet there is also significant time working independently.

ACT is a nonprofit organization helping people achieve educational and workplace success. Our programs are designed to boost lifelong learning in schools and workplaces around the world. Whether it's guiding students along their learning paths, enabling companies to develop their workforce, fostering parent, teacher, and counselor understanding of student progress, guiding job seekers toward career success, or informing policymakers about education and workforce issues. ACT is passionate about making a difference in all we do.
