At Pearson, we build technology to help you more accurately discover what your students and employees know. And we continually seek new ways to test for that knowledge. Our research and development team provides a highly specialized expertise with years of experience in language testing, speech processing, and technology. In close cooperation with international experts, Pearson conducts ongoing research aimed at gathering substantial evidence for the validity, reliability, and practicality of our current products. Research is at the heart of our work and we continually investigate new applications for our technology to help drive the next generation of assessment.
