A job/practice analysis is a systematic process used to identify the knowledge and skills required to perform the credentialed profession with at least the minimum required competence at the time the credential is earned. The job/practice analysis study provides evidence of the content validity of the credentialing test and supports the task of identifying candidates who are competent and qualified for the position. CPS HR conducts job analysis studies in adherence with all relevant professional credentialing and testing standards and guidelines. The result serves as the foundation for the test development.
The test plan, also known as the examination blueprint, serves as a roadmap for test developers, and is the next step in our full testing services program. It will identify the specific categories on information to be included in the credentialing test, the objectives to be covered in each category, and how many test items will comprise each category.
