ERB (Educational Records Bureau) is an industry-leading independent educational advisory. We thoughtfully track the entire student journey for Grades 1 – 12 with our integrated suite of products and services to assess and enhance academic ability, social maturity, and emotional awareness. In doing so, we help enable schools, educators, and families to unlock their students' full potential.
An ERB membership is more than the use of our best-in-class academic assessments. Membership is joining a global community of educators and access to ERB experts who can help you understand and—more importantly—activate your students’ assessment data to help every student achieve their learning goals.
Our mission is to increase access to high quality educational experiences for all students, no matter where they live. For more than 90 years, K-12 schools and families around the world have relied on ERB to provide them with the tools and insights they need to accurately track student progress and help every student reach their unique learning goals.
We prioritize and respond to the current needs of our member schools and families to meet them where they are.
As schools and students evolve, ERB does too.
We provide insight into our testing methodologies to inspire trust and invite feedback that helps us improve.
We work diligently to ensure that our learning solutions are accessible to every student and family, regardless of means or where they live, and thereby improve access to high-quality educational opportunities around the world.
We design and publish only the highest quality assessments and learning tools because we know that they play critical roles in students’ academic journeys by helping educators prepare them for success.
“To create testing and learning solutions that would help
schools develop improved curriculum based on results,
thus helping students gain a better education.”
—ERB founder, Dr. Charles K. Taylor, 1927
This was Dr. Charles K. Taylor’s founding mission when he created ERB in 1927. Over the last near century, we’ve listened closely and responded to changes in the education field, continuously evolving our products, services, and mission to help unlock the potential of every learner.
Learning doesn’t stop when students leave the classroom. That’s why we offer solutions and resources for both educators and families, and support students through their entire academic journey.
