What is The Psychometrics Forum

The Psychometrics Forum aims to enhance knowledge and understanding of Psychometrics and their best use. As a Forum, we provide a space where users and constructors of tests can be introduced to new tools, and discuss issues relevant to the use of psychometrics in the modern workplace. We provide a resource of psychometric knowledge for members, their employers and clients. We strive to uphold the highest standards in ethical and best practice test usage.

The Forum does not make a judgement about the psychometric properties of tests presented, rather the purpose of meetings is to discuss developments in Psychometric testing with others working in a similar field.

As our members are well acquainted with test usage and in some cases, many psychometric tools, we are able to offer speakers a knowledgeable audience and stimulating debate. In return, if presenting information relating to a test, we ask speakers to be able to provide some technical material relating to reliability, validity and psychometric value, for discussion.

Typically, our members are involved in all aspects of maximising human potential. The Psychometrics Forum is open to anyone who use or has some interest in psychometric tests; they may be self-employed independent consultants, or be directly employed within organisations.

Member benefits include reduced rates on test training; regular invitations to meetings, tailored to those working in the psychometrics field; access to informed debate; and a program of events reflecting current issues in Psychometrics.  See Benefits.  Meetings are friendly but with a business focus.

Disclaimer:  The Psychometrics Forum does not confer any status or value on tests presented. Presentation of tests at a Forum meeting should not be taken to mean that those instruments have any more or less validity, reliability or psychometric utility than others available in the market.


Highlights of 2015

In November 2015, we celebrated our first award ceremony.  This award was open to early researchers eg MSc and PhD students who are working in the field of psychometrics.  Anthony Thompson, of Coventry University, won the prize.

A highlight of The Psychometric Forum’s 2015 Christmas networking event was Rob Bailey’s ‘Magic Show’.  Many of the Forum know Rob from his work as a Chartered Occupational Psychologist and TPF events.  However, it might come as a surprise that in his spare time, Rob uses his skills as a both a psychologist and magician to entertain and amuse as the 'Psychic Psychologist'.  He is a member of the Magic Circle and has been seen at many venues, including the Edinburgh Fringe Festival.  His show was very entertaining, as well as enlightening and we now see him in a completely different light!
