About Research

Have questions about research at College Board?

The Research Department generates data and evidence on the impact of educational programs, assessments, and initiatives on students and various education stakeholders. We conduct research and analyses on issues related to academic preparation, college and career readiness, college access, admissions, affordability, collegiate outcomes, and education policy. We also apply our analytics and evidence to develop data-driven tools for practitioners. 

Research is a part of College Board’s Learning, Evaluation, and Research (LEvR) division, a multidisciplinary group of experts in Psychometrics, Education Research, Learning Science, Assessment Design and Development, and Survey Research. Together, these teams provide data- and evidence-driven perspectives, insights, and innovation to drive actions that support all students’ college and career success.
