What are the Psychometrics in Psychometric tests?


        Psychometrics is a branch of Psychology that uses statistical techniques to develop reliable and valid measures of human characteristics.

        Tests can make a significant contribution to selection and development programmes by revealing ability and personal characteristics that would not be discovered by other selection methods.

        Tests are constructed through a multi-stage repetitive process including item development, test validation and practical research and feedback. In our case a company’s management and HR staff are expected to be fully involved in the process. Generally we like to validate a particular test suite on existing employees who have performance related measures available for comparison purposes.

        In the case of Psychometrica International our academic and professional experience has allowed the accumulation of a wide range of tests and measures along with a vast store of normative data derived from Industrial real life contexts.
