AAI Centers

The Achievement & Assessment Institute is comprised of several centers, each representing a diversity of services and programs that help support and promote AAI's mission. Our centers are organized into two categories; Strategic Centers, which are expected to have strategic plans ensuring their long-term viability, and Tactical Centers, which are contingent upon faculty research agendas and funding. In addition to these two categories, AAI has a number of affiliated faculty at the University of Kansas and other institutions. Across all centers and affiliations, collaboration is crucial to our success.

Strategic Centers

AAI's Strategic centers are involved in testing and evaluation, education opportunity programs, education research, family optimization, software development, and more. Our Strategic Centers collaborate with agencies, organizations, and non-profits at both the local and national level to help our partners achieve their goals.
