Scale shortening

The practice of scale shortening stands out as a strategic approach that improves test efficiency while preserving its core value. We specialize in crafting shorter, yet robust assessments that align seamlessly with your specific goals.


Extensive assessments can deter optimal engagement and may lead to fatigue, affecting results. Our dedicated team dives deep into the content, employing psychometric expertise to shorten scales while maintaining their validity and reliability.


Comprehensive analysis

Starting with a thorough analysis, we evaluate every item on your scale, identifying those that are critical for the assessment and those that can be optimized or eliminated without affecting the test's essence.


Streamlined assessments

With a focus on clarity and precision, we redesign your assessments to be more streamlined. This not only enhances user experience but also ensures faster completion times without sacrificing the quality of the insights derived.


Psychometric validation

Post scale-shortening, we validate the revised assessments to ensure that they remain psychometrically sound. This step guarantees that the shortened scales still accurately measure the intended constructs.


Ongoing optimization and refinement

Acknowledging that assessment needs can evolve over time, we implement an ongoing optimization process. This approach enables us to iteratively refine and enhance scales, ensuring they consistently meet the changing demands.
