Pearson to Preview New Digital Platform, Leveraging the Power of Technology to Transform Interactive Assessment

Pearson Clinical Assessment are delighted to introduce the first step in the evolution of assessment with Q-interactive, an evolutionary tool for professionals involved in the administration of psychological, neuropsychological and other diagnostic interactive assessments. Q-interactive will be available to preview, during a reception at this years BPS Division of Clinical Psychology's annual conference.

This new solution leverages the power of digital technology to allow qualified clinicians to focus on what they do best - through a portable, easy-to-use assessment system that provides 24-hour access to choose, administer and score clinical assessments, while they capture and record critical client behaviours and nuances that are crucial to successful assessment and treatment. Q-interactive streamlines the entire assessment process. Clinicians are able to create client profiles with contact information and medical histories, choose and develop assessment batteries, and review scored data through a secure web-portal. Administration takes place using two digital tablets that "talk" to each other via Bluetooth connection. The clinician uses one to administer instructions, record and score responses, take notes and control visual stimuli. The client uses the other to view and respond to stimuli. Current assessment batteries available include WAIS®-IVUK, WISC®-IVUK, CVLT®-II, CVLT®-C and D-KEFS with an evolving library of tests and subtests to be designed in the near future. Pearson Assessment will be previewing Q-interactive during the BPS Division of Clinical Psychology's wine reception at their annual conference on the 7th December 2012. We cordially invite delegates to join us.

Commenting on a recent customer review period for Q-interactive, Chris Hall, Managing Director, Pearson Assessment said: "Q-interactive is a truly innovative digital solution that will enhance and streamline the clinician's assessment process. We have worked to the guiding principals of efficiency, access, clinical utility, reliability and ease of use and created a system that will lead the way assessment, evolution. We are excited to be previewing Q-interactive at the BPS DCP reception and sharing the views of our Q-interactive champions."
