Psychometric Test Translation

Are you looking for valid, reliable and equivalent translation for your psychometric test?

What Is a Psychometric Test?

Psychometric tests are a type of assessment instrument that prove practical for a variety of reasons. They can evaluate educational levels and academic achievement in areas like reading, writing and math, as well as measure abilities like verbal reasoning and spatial reasoning, personality, intelligence, and cognitive processes like memory and abstract thinking. Psychometric tests are administered by schools, universities, businesses, corporations and other organizations to gauge performance, suitability and behavior.

The Demands of Heterogeneous Test Takers on Psychometric Tests

With greater migration and globalization, psychometric tests are increasingly administered to test takers outside the cultural and linguistic group for which they were originally intended. Besides the language the test is given in, common areas of concern include the use of foreign expressions, acronyms, jargon, measurements and currency, which can cause a number of negative testing consequences if administrators are unprepared.

When a psychometric test is administered outside a homogeneous cultural and linguistic group, appropriate psychometric test translation and adaptation becomes vital, even if it is a highly complex task. Successful psychometric test translation depends on achieving all of the following: content validity, cultural relevance, conceptual equivalence, item equivalence and psychometric comparability.

These are the keys to preserving the integrity of your psychometric test, as well as creating a defensible process, achieving compliance, ensuring better comprehension and enjoying more accurate outcomes.
