Research and psychometrics

we develop tomorrow's tests



THE RESEARCH COMPANY PSYKOMETRIKA


Our aim is to drive development of knowledge in psychological measurement. Therefore Psykometrika participate actively in the debate and research about psychometrics. Regularly we make a quality review of our subtests, and gradually improve and develop our services. We want to offer the market the most effective test battery that takes advantage of modern knowledge about what makes today's employees perform.

Currently our research mainly is about prejudice and "dark personality". As for "Dark Personality" at the present we collect data and currently we have no empirical results to report. When it comes to research on prejudices, however, we have a lot of interesting empirical results to report. Read more about this in our blog (Swedish).
