How can smarter assessment solutions improve your organizations process of developing exams, as well as make delivery more accurate and secure?
This paper discusses some of the ways that technology is currently impacting how we tackle psychometric issues, and the field of assessment in general. It also discusses how Artificial Intelligence will start impacting what we do (2018).
CAT is the test delivery approach of the 21st century, utilizing intelligent algorithms to tailor the test optimally for each examinee. CAT will reduce testing time and increase security. This paper discusses the advantages and disadvantages of CAT.
CATs have many benefits, including cutting testing time in half, but require experienced psychometricians, extensive pilot samples, and specialized software. This paper provides an overview of what is needed before your organization can consider adaptive testing.
This is a brief introduction to the topics of reliability and validity – the two core concepts of psychometrics – and how they relate to assessment, particularly certification testing.
When testing large volumes of examinees, delivering tests on computer will deliver substantial financial benefits, assuming that you have infrastructure already in place.
Learning Management Systems (LMS) typically include rudimentary functionality for quizzes and exams. However, because they are designed for eLearning and course management, the testing functionality is extremely limited. This paper explains why systems actually designed for assessment should be used for assessment.
The basic building block of a good test is good items. There’s a lot that goes into this. Here is an abbreviated copy of the manual that we use to train item writers, guide assessment organizations, and provide expert item review to ensure quality.
Developing an accredited certification program is no easy feat, requiring at least a year of effort from a team of experts and tens (often hundreds) of thousands of dollars. This whitepaper will explore the proper steps an organization needs to take in order to receive accreditation.
This paper discusses the modern approach to personalized assessment – computerized adaptive testing – and how it can impact eLearning and Distance Learning. The melding of these two topics was later terms “Computational Psychometrics.”
