On-Demand Webinar | Pitfalls to Avoid while Translating Psychometric Assessments

Psychometric assessments have become a crucial component of the recruitment and development process at scale. To hire the right candidate, one needs to ensure that the tests are fair, valid, reliable and defensible in all the languages that are available to the test takers. Different types of assessments present different challenges, and we shall show you how we address these here at cApStAn, focusing on equivalence across languages as well as appropriateness in the target culture.
