By capitalizing on our diverse experience, you can rest assured that every phase of the test development cycle is implemented with sound psychometric services.

From job analysis, blueprint design, item writer training, item authoring, item review, and technical reports, to custom adaptive testing algorithms, we are familiar with the entire test development cycle. Moreover, we understand the realities of working through test development cycle; SME time is very valuable, and we try to leverage technology to utilize them most effectively. We also help you understand each step of the way, so that you can ensure you candidates understand the investment you are making in psychometric services.

Certification & Accreditation

Accreditation is the process of obtaining a stamp of approval that your certification exam is of good quality.  Anyone can write 50 questions in their basement and throw it up online, calling it a certification.  But there is much, much more to go through if you truly want a certification with validity.  Two of the most common boards are NCCA and ANSI.

We help you crack the accreditation puzzle through psychometric consulting such as job analysisitem writer trainingstandard-setting studiestest blueprint development, and statistical performance reports.  We can help with non-psychometric work as well, from board governance to recertification policies.
