A key part of meeting the needs of your clients is choosing the appropriate assessment instrument. Some clients may present with specific symptoms that clearly lead you to a full assessment vehicle. Other instances may not be so clear cut. In those situations, a screening test can be the best starting point.
One of the biggest advantages of screening tests is the ability to confirm or rule out specific issues. They can also save you time and money versus administering a full assessment product.
PAR offers a total of 37 screening, short, and abbreviated forms that cover a variety of constructs. The full list is as follows:
Please note that for some products, you may have to go to the parent product page, as not all screeners have their own web page. With so many to choose from, we’re confident that we have a screening instrument to meet your needs.
PAR is committed to supporting the valuable work instructors do in educating students on the most up-to-date, research-based assessment tools available. As a part of that commitment, we created the University Partnership Program (UPP).
The UPP is PAR’s free concierge service for universities. The program is dedicated to assisting instructors and their students as they pursue advanced degrees.
When a university joins the UPP, they receive a dedicated UPP Specialist who serves as their single point of contact. This Specialist will serve as their gateway to all the advantages the UPP has to offer. This includes features such as complimentary assessment tools, discounts for students and professors, and product-focused presentations that can be used to guide instruction.
The UPP takes on tasks that can give instructors time—time that can be invested in students.
Focused on providing support, the UPP features eight essential elements that we refer to as The Circle of Support. To see the full list of advantages that the UPP offers, please refer to this infographic.
To learn more or to join the UPP, call our UPP Specialists at 1.866.727.2884 or send an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org.
