Press release from: AssessmentDay Ltd

Chelmsford, United Kingdom (06 May, 2011) - AssessmentDay, leading experts in online aptitude tests and psychometric tests, comment on the safety of psychometric test publishers' intellectual property.

The safety of intellectual property for psychometric tests have recently been called in to question, as it has been known for test questions to be made public, therefore allowing candidates to practice their answers before taking a real test as part of an interview or application process. AssessmentDay believe that the practice of making questions available beforehand will ultimately invalidate the results and the tests would no longer be of any real use to employers or organisations.

The Committee of Test Standards (CTS), who recently held a meeting to discuss the security of test intellectual property, is dedicated to safeguarding test items from being made public. The CTS insist that all members adhere to a code of conduct, which means they are required to sign an agreement to secure test materials so unqualified people do not locate the information and thus invalidate the entire psychometric testing process. As a result of this code of conduct, anyone that does not abide by the intellectual property agreement and undermines the security of test materials may be subject to legal action.

A spokesperson for AssessmentDay commented: "Test publishers spend lots of time and money developing their test items so it is highly immoral, not to mention illegal, to share test questions. Doing so will ultimately devalue psychometric testing as a tool. That is why AssessmentDay write their own questions respecting others' intellectual property. We strongly condemn any attempts to share test publishers' material. The valued efforts made by the CTS ensure employers can continue to use psychometric testing to help them find the best candidates."
