CYBERJAYA, MALAYSIA, June 26, 2021 /24-7PressRelease/ -- Global Psytech Sdn Bhd (https://www.globalpsytech.com/) has signed an agreement with Assessment Systems Corporation (ASC; assess.com) to serve as the authorized distributor for Malaysia. Global Psytech is a provider of assessment technology and data analytic solutions in various industries for Malaysia, from Finance to Education to Human Resources.
Global Psytech will be able to provide ASC's software to Malaysian organizations, with on-the-ground support from its team of experts. Global Psytech is headquartered in Cyberjaya, the center of the technology industry in Malaysia, providing ideal connections to many of the leading organizations in the country. With a team of data analysts and assessment professionals, as well as the leading PhD psychometrician in the country, it is uniquely positioned to drive the modernization of assessment in Malaysia - a topic which has become even more important with the shifts being driven by the pandemic towards online learning and assessment. Moreover, this shift is not just for elementary school students; employment testing, professional development, and certification/licensure exams are also seeing major changes.
ASC's software platforms are designed to address this market, though ASC was providing such platforms for decades before the pandemic. ASC's online assessment system leverages computerized adaptive testing (CAT), item response theory (IRT), automated item generation, linear on the fly testing, online essay marking, remote proctoring, and other modern technologies that are now considered essential for any assessment organization.
ASC's CEO, Nathan Thompson PhD, notes: "Global Psytech's experience in the Malaysian market, combined with their in-house expertise in psychometrics and assessment, make them the ideal partner for Malaysia. Moreover, they share our culture and mission, with a focus on the marriage of science and technology to improve the field of assessment."
Global Psytech's CEO, Haniza Yon PhD, remarks: "ASC has a history of working on assessment and psychometrics in the region. In 2010, Dr. Thompson taught a workshop on adaptive testing and item response theory to over 100 professionals from Malaysia and nearby countries such as Singapore, Australia, Philippines, Vietnam and Thailand. ASC also partners with the Singapore Ministry of Defence and the Singapore Examinations and Assessment Board for adaptive testing projects. In addition to being an authorized distributor in Malaysia, we regard ASC as a strategic partner in research and development. We hope that by working with a company with an excellent reputation in adaptive testing, we will be able to combine our expertise with theirs to have a positive impact on Malaysia."
