Professional Organisations

Your Career. Our Priority.

Across professions as diverse as IT, healthcare and financial services, as well as a vast array of vocational subjects, there is a constantly increasing need for assessments that are recognised and valued by employers, institutions and learners alike.

As the job market becomes increasingly competitive with changing job roles, awarding and professional organisations need to be able to support their learners by making them more marketable and giving them a competitive advantage in a global jobs market. We fully understand that your reputation as an awarding organisation is critical to your ongoing success and we have the technology, expertise and experience to ensure that exams are fair, valid and reliable, and that the learnes are getting the grade that they deserve. We have developed 1,000’s of professional and vocational tests with our customers, so we understand how you work and what you need to ensure a successful programme.

Performance-Based Testing

Where testing involves the use of specific software, PSI’s performance-based testing approach represents the gold standard in online assessment of computer skills. With our unique in-application item type, candidates complete tasks in the live application itself and the system judges the candidate on whether each task has been completed correctly or not. As a result, we’re able to focus on demonstrable skills rather than recalled knowledge and provide a truer measure of a candidate’s capabilities.

Test Security

Our holistic approach to test security involves identifying and mitigating security threats at all stages of the test cycle from development to delivery, data reporting and analysis. When delivering tests through any of our channels, we actively safeguard intellectual property and candidate data at every point of engagement, balancing the needs for each individual user’s access with the overriding need to secure and protect this most valuable of data.

PSI also has the capability to carry out forensic analysis of exam metadata on behalf of our customers to reveal outlier patterns of test-taking behaviour that may reveal improprieties in the aggregate or individual examination
