Our responsible AI core principles*

For governing future assessment technology development that incorporates generative AI.

We believe that Generative AI should be:


Customers must maintain complete authority over the adoption and use of AI technology, in alignment with their own organizational principles, objectives, and guidelines.

Accurate & transparent

AI technology outputs should be accurate and include justifications and citations to sources so that users can determine whether outputs are accurate, reliable, and appropriate for their intended uses.


AI technology should incorporate processes that continuously aim to identify and eliminate any bias and discrimination for its designed use, so that it does not cause harm to others.

Secure & private

AI technology must have robust enterprise security controls and compliance with current industry standards, so that no customer-provided data (including prompts and outputs) is accessible to unauthorized parties or used for training data.


AI technology should be designed to enable ongoing monitoring of AI outputs for error detection and correction, and to ensure ease of human oversight.


The inclusion of AI technology should be engineered to be intuitive and ensure a seamless user experience, so that only minimal additional training is required for users and SMEs.


AI technology should be embedded directly within existing user interfaces wherever possible and appropriate, so that users and SMEs can take advantage of AI at the touch of a button within their existing workflows and processes.

Expertly directed

A dedicated, multi-disciplinary Advisory Board should provide insights and thought leadership so that the responsible use of AI technology within assessment products and services is thoughtfully and effectively developed.

*The assessment technology provider will be accountable for ensuring all AI functionality adheres to these principles.
