Your Psychometrician's Psychometrician

Iteman™ empowers more organizations to implement best practices in Psychometrics. It uses the concepts of AI and automation to replace much of the work that a psychometrician used to do manually by jockeying spreadsheets or spending a day with copy-and-paste!

Reduce Test Development Time & Costs

Iteman is a software platform for automated psychometric reporting (test and item analysis) with classical test theory. What does that mean?  It means that the software doesn’t just calculate statistics – it automatically builds you a tech report in MS Word, potentially hundreds of pages, with embedded narratives, graphs, and tables like you see here.  You can take the item analysis pages and share them on your screen to discuss with the content experts.

What does Iteman™ look like?

Iteman provides a straightforward UI for you to specify your input files and types of test and item analysis you want to do.  As you can see in the video, instead of having to write command code, you simply click on the options you need:

  • Differential item functioning
  • Mastery (cutscore) analysis
  • Scaled scoring
  • Automated flagging of poorly performing items
  • Collusion (cheating) analysis


Of course, Iteman provides all of the standard results from CTT analysis, out of the box without you needing to check some boxes:

  • Reliability & SEM analysis
  • Descriptive statistics (mean, SD, Mean P, Mean Rpbis)
  • Total score vs subscores (domains/areas) histograms
  • Item statistics such as P and Rpbis
  • Distractor analysis (option P, Rpbis, etc)
  • Decision consistency

What does Iteman™ output look like?

Instead of producing output as ASCII text from the 1980s, Iteman produces a full narrative report in Microsoft Word.  You can then use this as the starting point draft for your own report, saving you many hours of effort.

The program produces extensive test-level output regarding the examinee scores, including 7 estimates of reliability, complete analysis of domains (content areas), frequency distributions of scores, subscores, and statistics, and CSEM.

However, the majority of the report is item-by-item results using classical test theory like you see here, presented in detailed tables with a quantile plot for each item. Simply paste in item texts, and you have a comprehensive report ready for item reviewers!

A number of large testing companies use Iteman™ to produce reports for clients, charging up to $5,000 each time – you can now produce these reports yourself for a fraction of the cost!
