Test Development

PSI works with governmental agencies and professional associations to develop licensing and certification tests. PSI takes on the rigorous, scientific processes involved in test development to enable the systematic collection, analysis, and interpretation of information about work in order to make a valid interpretation of a candidate’s knowledge. By thoroughly understanding the content and the context of the assessment, we can develop an instrument that predicts performance and achieves the goals set forth by our clients.

Our test development process consists of several steps, including:

  • Job Analysis
  • Test Development Planning
  • Item Writing
  • Item Review and Revision
  • Item Banking
  • Field Testing
  • Item Analysis and Revision
  • Test Assembly

Each phase of the test development cycle is closely scrutinized and managed by experts in test development.
