Speakers Bureau

Need an assessment expert? Measured Progress can help!

Why Measured Progress?

We are a not-for-profit testing firm with 30 years of innovative testing experience in states and districts. We’re not a subsidiary of a large corporation; testing and related services are our only business. In short, we are able to offer an independent, candid look into the world of assessment.

Our seasoned speakers are prepared to serve as keynotes, panelists and moderators, expert witnesses, and media sources. Many of our experts started their careers as teachers and all are educators at heart. But their expertise in assessment and other education public policy matters enables them to lend a distinctive voice, no matter what the setting.

To request a speaker:

Please contact Harry Barfoot if you are interested in engaging one of our experts, barfoot.harry@measuredprogress.org, 603.749.9102, ext. 2124. Our speakers do not expect to be paid honoraria, but we welcome travel assistance. If your budget does not include funds for speakers’ travel expenses, we have a limited amount of resources to cover such costs.
