Ramsay Corporation’s Reporting System contains “job profile” creation. This advanced feature allows examinees’ test scores to be compared to a desired “job profile”. Simply put, “job profiles” allow for a candidate’s performance to be compared to cutting or passing scores developed during validation or determined by individual organizations.

Ramsay Corporation usually establishes cutting scores by using a modified Angoff procedure as part of a test validation study. This requires a panel of job experts who go through a process of job analysis; generation of knowledge, skills and abilities; and Angoff procedure during which each test question is reviewed and rated by each job expert.

These cutting scores may be set for custom-made tests, off-the-shelf tests, or in some circumstances, pre-existing client-made tests. When a cutting score has been established for a test, it may be used to establish job profile qualification.

These job profiles can be created with the help of Ramsay Corporation. Included with a validation study is the creation of job profiles with suggested cut scores. Companies may also purchase the Enterprise subscription to set additional cut scores.

A job profile can be defined with a single cutting score on one assessment or a battery of tests with each component having its own cutting score. For example:

 

JOB PROFILE 1
ASSESSMENT PRIMARY SCORE
Maintest – A 90
JOB PROFILE 2
ASSESSMENT PRIMARY SCORE
Combined Basic Skills – Reading 8
Combined Basic Skills – Arithmetic 10
Combined Basic Skills – Inspection & Measurement 8
Combined Basic Skills – Process Monitoring 6
Mechanical Aptitude Test 24
JOB PROFILE 3
ASSESSMENT PRIMARY SCORE
Maintenance Mechanic A 75
-or-
Maintenance Mechanic B 75

 

Job profiles can also account for multiple skill levels allowing for examinees to be easily weighed against three different cutting scores for a single assessment. This can allow for classification of an applicant to a certain level of a job. Tests can have total score requirements or test sub-section requirements depending on these qualification scores.

Form letters for qualified and unqualified candidates can also be generated, streamlining the process of informing candidates.
