Assessment Center

All MBA Research assessments are based on the national, business-validated Business Administration Standards. To ensure content validity for the topic being tested, each test item is anchored to a specific validated performance indicator (PI). We utilize reliability, discrimination, and other statistical measures to ensure that all MBA tests meet the highest standards for best-practice assessment of student performance.

Why Use Pretests?

At the start of each school year, teachers grapple with a common dilemma: How do I get students’ minds back into “learning mode” while discovering what knowledge and experiences they bring with them? The answer: pretests.

Administering a pretest offers a multitude of benefits:

Get Feedback On Student Learning
Get Feedback On Student Learning
  • Teachers can use pretest results to determine what course content students have already mastered, allowing for more customized and/or differentiated instruction.
  • Pretesting before a larger assessment can help gauge strengths as well as areas for improvement before the exam.
Measure Student Progress
Measure Student Progress
  • Comparing a student’s pretest with a later assessment can provide proof of a student’s learning over time.
  • Teachers can measure student growth or “value added,” across even a multi-year program of study.
Show Students What They Can Expect
Show Students What They Can Expect
  • Pretests help students understand what will be expected of them.
  • A pretest can provide students with a preview of the key topics that they need to study and reduce their test anxiety by exposing them to the types of questions that will be on the posttest.

MBA Research Pretests

On board with pretesting? We offer a variety of pretests online for end-of-program and A*S*K certification exams. Each 100-item multiple-choice pretest covers the same broad range of performance indicators as its corresponding posttest and contains items similar (but not identical) to the posttest.
