Founded in 2016, ACTNext is a multidisciplinary innovation unit established by ACT CEO Marten Roorda and led by Senior Vice President Alina von Davier. The group is comprised of experts in fields ranging from psychometrics and learning sciences to software development, AI & Machine Learning, and data visualization.
Von Davier and her team operate at the forefront of Computational Psychometrics, a theory and data driven methodology blending the analytical tools of the new millennium with cutting edge work in psychometric research. This unique approach allows ACTNext and their colleagues at ACT to not only develop innovative solutions to challenging problems, but to change the very ways in which assessment is traditionally thought of.
Together, they are working to provide learners with tools and experiences that are more than integrated, personalized and adaptive; they’re working to make them transformational.
