Measured Progress

When Rich Hill and Stuart Kahl founded Measured Progress (then Advanced Systems) in 1983, they could not have predicted that their "boutique" assessment firm would one day assess more than 2.5 million students nationwide. Measured Progress is an industry leader in the development of customized, K-12 student assessments for schools, districts, and states. With more than 400 employees and offices in four states, the non-profit company remains true to its founders' philosophy: assessments are a means, not an end. It still is all about student learning.
