  • Exploring the implications of new technology: Among the Centre's particular interests are online adaptive testing, applying psychometrics to social networks, and the use of machine intelligence and data mining. We can advise on how any of these may apply to your products, enabling you to keep ahead of your competitors.
  • Professional Training: We can run training courses on your behalf if this is not part of your core business or needs to take place in an accredited academic institution.

These are just some of the ways we can help you get the most out of testing and psychometrics. Contact us now to talk about any particular issues you have.
