Our Mission

We are a K–12 assessment solutions provider focused on building a bridge between learning and accountability. As a wholly-owned, independently-operated subsidiary of Educational Testing Service, we share a belief that better measurement solutions can make a positive impact on education. We take a fresh and innovative approach to design, delivery, scoring, analysis, and reporting. And we are reimagining how assessment can empower educators by giving them the insights they need to improve instruction and fully prepare students for college or career. Our high-quality, reliable assessment products and services are easily scaled and tailored to meet the specific needs of states and districts at an unprecedented value. Educators trust our high-performing teams and dependable technology to minimize risks and ensure success for states, districts, schools and students.

Community Oriented

At Questar, colleagues enjoy numerous opportunities to get together and celebrate well-won victories. Whether it’s the simple pleasures like potlucks, pinball, and pool, or the more elaborate winter and summer events—including curling contests and catered riverboat excursions—employees at Questar have plenty of opportunity to have fun together and create a community.

Developing Together

With a service based around education, assessment, and improvement, it’s no surprise that the same mentality of development pervades the offices of Questar. Supported by an enthusiastic and accessible leadership—even up to the C-level—employees enjoy an open culture and numerous opportunities to sharpen their abilities, learning both from colleagues and with tools like Lynda.com.
