Grounded in solid research. Backed by rigorous studies
Q-interactive is built on a solid foundation of research. Prior to inclusion in the Q-interactive library, each new type of subtest undergoes an equivalency study to evaluate whether scores from Q-interactive testing are interchangeable with those scored from paper-and-pencil testing. Currently, raw scores from Q-interactive are interpreted using paper-pencil norms, and the equivalency studies support the validity of this practice.
