Full-Service Assessment Solutions
- Need more development bandwidth to write effective assessment items?
- Looking to build or expand internal assessment development capacity?
- Need to verify that items and assessments are reliable and valid?
Scantron provides a full spectrum of support for your assessment development. Whether you want to do it yourself with in-house experts and just need a little support, or whether you need a partner who can guide you through the process, Scantron can meet you where you are and help get you to where you want to be.
Build capacity within your team
Your team is your human capital—no one knows your organization's needs better than those working within it. In addition to providing blueprint, item, or assessment deliverables, Scantron offers extensive professional development so you can grow or expand your own internal expertise.
Support and enhance your team’s efforts
Scantron can provide professional development workshops and deeper consulting to work with your assessment team and develop a plan to meet your needs.
- Developing an assessment blueprint can be a challenge. Scantron can help with consulting and professional development.
- Writing test items yourself provides more control over content, but it also requires assessment
expertise (in addition to subject-matter expertise). Scantron’s team of assessment experts can help guide the item development process, including instruction on the important points of skillful question writing to ensure that tests contain quality items that are valid, reliable, and legally defensible.
- Sometimes an outside eye can provide that final level of validation you need. Scantron’s team can review your existing items for content, difficulty level, bias, and other critical factors. We also provide professional development on bias and other review topics.
- Once you have items, assembling them into a psychometrically valid and reliable test is a significant task. Scantron’s assessment experts can help you create test forms and banks you can deliver easily.
Provide standard or custom content
- Work with Scantron’s team of item development experts to create individual items to fill in gaps, comprehensive item suites, complete tests, or all of the above, designed expressly for your needs.
- Use Scantron assessment services to create your own banks of test items. Commercial item banks provide high-quality, individual items you can include in tests.
Help you develop and deliver a complete plan
Scantron Assessment Services can help you with your complete assessment plan. We can guide you through best practices, create blueprints, develop comprehensive item suites for a variety of exam types, and design assessments to measure the critical certification components for both organizational success and public protection.
