With offices in 13 states and eight countries and more than 1,800 employees, American Institutes for Research in the Behavioral Sciences is one of the world's largest behavioral and social science research and evaluation organizations. Founded in 1946, the organization’s mission is to use science and evaluation to improve people’s lives with a special emphasis on the disadvantaged. The Washington D.C.-based organization brings multidisciplinary teams together to help policymakers, agencies and practitioners in the United States and abroad improve quality of education, health care and workforce productivity.

American Institutes’ experts translate research into practice and policy. Its assessment program gives schools information to help students achieve and oversight agencies tools to evaluate school system performance. The educational team analyzes state longitudinal data to examine how education policies and interventions affect school outcomes and student success. In the areas of health and social development, the organization works within and across systems to research strategies that improve lives. In the areas of workforce and life-long learning, the focus is on adult learning and literacy, disability and rehabilitation, and the application of evidence-based practices.
