Publish with confidence
No matter who develops the exam content, its transformation from words on a page to an accurate and functioning exam is the responsibility of our industry-leading test publishing team. Our experts in feasibility, navigation, technical coding, and troubleshooting work together to ensure that your exam displays and behaves as intended.
With diverse industry expertise, our teams are dedicated to your programme’s success. From the day we help you develop your content to the moment we launch your exam, we immerse ourselves in your programme because we understand that it’s not just any exam. It’s your exam.
The power of data-driven analysis and measurement
It’s not enough to develop strong exam content. A successful computer-based testing programme must continue to evaluate their test design and analyse the performance of the exam to see that it correctly measures exam objectives. To that end, test development is a continual effort, requiring attention and care to ensure the exam — and the data it produces — maintain your industry’s standards.
Using our state-of-the-art analytical processes and tools, Pearson VUE’s psychometric team can meet your test and item analysis requirements, giving you peace of mind about the validity of your exam. Our psychometricians can regularly review the performance of your items, tests, and item banks and report on their performance.
