World’s First Psychometrics MOOC from PsyAsia International
In another PsyAsia First initiative, PsyAsia International, Asia’s independent leader in Psychometric Test Training, is offering the world’s first Psychometric Testing MOOC, starting this October 7.
Workplace & Human Resource Focus
The focus of this online course is on Psychometric Testing for the Workplace and hence very relevant to Human Resources and allied professionals.
Learners will be taught how to evaluate and therefore choose psychometric tests; how to administer, score and interpret them; and how to use psychometric tests in the decision-making process. The course will be relevant to anybody who needs to make decisions about people at work, whether it be for recruitment/selection, development, career counseling and more.
How the Free Online Training in Psychometrics Works
This is a 10-week, free online training in psychometrics. The principal mode of instruction is the same as most MOOCs – video lessons, followed by interactive quizzes. There will also be a course forum for delegate interaction and the facilitator will arrange LIVE online sessions for additional learning and Q&As.
Psychometrics MOOC Facilitator
PsyAsia International is a multiple award-winning leader in innovative Psychometric Test Training in Asia. The lead facilitator for this course is Dr. Graham Tyler. Dr. Tyler is a highly experienced UK and Australia-educated, award-winning and published registered psychologist.
When asked about why the company is offering this free online course, Dr. Tyler replied:
“There are a few reasons. Probably the most important is that generally where we see bad press about psychometric tests it is because of the end user. As a result of not understanding psychometrics and how tests work, the wrong tests get chosen or good tests are incorrectly used and even abused. We have been upholding standards in psychometric testing in Asia since 2002 by insisting on training when many of our competitors have waived training for the sake of fast sales. Now it’s time to take our influence in competent testing further by removing all barriers to good training and offering free online training in psychometrics for a global audience.”
