Commitment to Technical Excellence
We take an "old school" approach to job analysis and test validation — that is, we don't cut corners,
and we believe in producing solutions that conform
with the goals of the Uniform Guidelines and other relevant standards documents
regarding the need for convincing empirical demonstrations of validity and reliability.
We use state-of-the-art technologies in test-development, including computer-adaptive
testing (CAT), item-response theory (IRT) calibration and scoring, IRT-based assessment of test "fairness" using differential item
functioning (DIF) statistics, and IRT appropriateness indices to assess ratings quality.
Unlike giant firms that stress a "one size fits all" approach, we enjoy doing custom
projects that involve test development, test validation, web-software
development, competency modeling, and similar functions.
Commitment to Open Standards and Security
We develop our online assessment and job analysis services using Java and other "open"
standards. The robustness of our web-based solutions has been demonstrated by over 15 years of applied use.
