ETS Awarded Grant to Evaluate University Access Program

origin: ETS Awarded Grant to Evaluate University Access Program (http://www.uk.toefl.eu)

The Goldman Sachs Foundation has tapped ETS, under the leadership of ETS personnel Michael Nettles and Catherine Millett, to evaluate a new University Access Program.
The program — which was started in 2005 and is funded by a $2.3 million grant from the foundation — collaborates with universities in Ireland, South Africa, the United Kingdom and the United States to improve the access of academically gifted students from underrepresented groups to top colleges.
The goals of the program are to:
• Select public, secondary-school students with demonstrated academic ability and potential, who come from backgrounds that are underrepresented at selective colleges.
• Recruit and enrol these targeted students in multi-year, college-preparatory programs.
• Assess outcomes to ensure positive results for the participants, including matriculation and achievement of academic success in college.
Nettles, Senior Vice President of the Policy Evaluation & Research Center of ETS, and Millett, a Research Scientist in the center, were awarded a $210,000 grant by the foundation to evaluate the program, serve as advisers, and assist in the dissemination of the evaluation's findings and results.
"We are extremely grateful for the Goldman Sachs Foundation's respect, and for its continued confidence in ETS. Dr. Catherine Millett and I feel privileged to be able to conduct the evaluation of the new University Access Program on behalf of ETS," Nettles says. "It is especially significant that this new initiative involves three world class universities abroad that will work together with a group of several leading universities in the United States."
The colleges that are part of the program are Trinity College in Ireland; the University of Witwatersrand in South Africa; the London School of Economics and Political Science in the United Kingdom; and Georgetown University, Harvard University, Princeton University and the University of Chicago in the United States.
The Goldman Sachs Foundation, which is funded by the Goldman Sachs Group, strives to promote excellence, innovation in education, and improvement in the academic performance of young people worldwide.
