PSI Helps Complete NASCLA’s 2012 Occupational Analysis for Commercial General Building Contractor Examinations
Burbank, CA – (August 27, 2012) — PSI, an industry-leading provider of professional testing services, assisted the National Association of State Contractor Licensing Agencies (NASCLA) with completing the 2012 Occupational Analysis for Commercial General Building Contractor Examination. The 2012 occupational analysis resulted in a revised examination outline that will be used by testing providers to update the NASCLA-Accredited Examination. PSI is the only provider to be actively administering an accredited exam. The NASCLA-accredited exam is administered in Alabama, Georgia, Mississippi, and South Carolina. The passing results are also accepted in an additional four states, Arkansas, Louisiana, North Carolina, and Tennessee.
PSI’s Manager of Licensure Test Development, Brian Moritsch, and Test Development Specialist, Linda Newman, were integral to the completion of this project. They were instrumental in developing the task and knowledge/ability statements.
An occupational analysis is required by professional testing standards to ensure that the content of licensing examinations is focused on job-related knowledge and abilities. The results directly determine the content of the licensing examination in terms of how many questions should be focused on different areas of trade practice.
PSI has conducted national job analyses for other professions, such as real estate and insurance professionals.
PSI has over 65 years of experience providing solutions to federal and state agencies, corporations, and professional associations. PSI offers a comprehensive solutions approach from test development to delivery to results processing, including pre-hire employment selection, managerial assessments, licensing and certification tests, license management services and professional services.
