Assessment and Testing - The Measure of Success

All companies, professionals, individuals and systems can benefit from a thorough evaluation of performance via assessment and testing. Many of us are familiar with regular assessment and testing throughout our education, but there is some argument as to whether test results truly reflect achievement. People learn and perform in different ways, particularly under pressure, so there needs to be an awareness and understanding of different ways to assess achievement, across all spheres.

Assessment and testing is needed across almost all professional sectors in some form or another, be it to assess the output of a team or individual, required specialist knowledge, the usefulness of a system, or whether a company meets formal regulations. This information can then be used to improve processes, determine and implement training investment, and identify areas that need further attention.

Education 

Assessment and testing is widely used in the education sector for admissions, school readiness and placement testing - and also to assess teachers, institutes and the assessors themselves. Assessment and testing courses cover all kinds of educational assessment information and certifications for those in the field.

Recruitment

Broadly speaking, all employees are assessed in some form or another before being recruited. Assessment and testing courses can help provide employers, HR professionals, or those responsible for recruitment with the right knowledge and methods required to carry out their assessments effectively and make the right hire.
