Creating Quality Items that Align with Your Test Blueprint

Writing test questions should be strategic, laying the foundation of your exam. It’s a science that many test development brands like to keep hidden. At Yardstick, we prefer to teach our partners this crucial step so they can be confident in their own work, as well as ours. Learn more about our item development process and strategies below.


Everything You Need in Item Creation and Banking

Partners, Not Gatekeepers

We believe your exam content is your property, so you have full access to it 24/7. No more requesting access. No black box. No more wasted time.

No Publishing Fees

You can make changes to your item bank as you see fit because you have access to your exam content. And no publishing fees saves you money that you can spend on other parts of your program. 

Customized Item Banking

Through workflow management, we help you customize your item bank hierarchy based on your needs. Better yet, your items won’t need to be exported to a third-party platform. It’s all in one place.

Item Translation Services

Translating your item bank allows test items to serve new audiences, helping your organization grow and reach new candidates.

Automatic Item Generation

Our AIG platform quickly and easily creates dozens of exam questions based on one stem, significantly decreasing the cost and time of item generation. Learn more about Itematic.
