A Comprehensive Spectrum of Content Development Services
Expand the possibilities and power of innovative and emerging item types, supported by a solid research foundation.
High quality content. Highly qualified content specialists.
Pacific Metrics offers a full range of item and assessment content development services supported by the critical functions of field testing, data review, form construction, and the review and maintenance of item banks. Our team of item and test developers includes highly qualified subject matter experts in mathematics, reading and language arts, science, and social studies. Many are former classroom teachers and all bring a deep knowledge of academic standards and best practices in item development to the challenge of creating assessment items and tests that accurately measure knowledge and address the many ways students approach and respond to test items.
We develop test items guided by both Evidenced-Centered and Universal Design principles and our items and tests are aligned with critical standards to support specific state and client needs.
