Software development in the field of psychology
intranda has been developing software for psychological testing purposes since 2007 in collaboration with universities, publishers and consulting firms.
The main focus of psychological testing methods is on the correct recording of testee data. As well as ensuring that time-critical tasks are displayed accurately (in some cases in milliseconds), it is essential to measure the responses of individual testees to each item precisely. In our first software projects, this was achieved by structuring tests to include laptops and additional touchscreen devices, primarily in order to measure a child’s intuitive response as accurately as possible. Since 2011, the tests have increasingly been conducted using tablets. Not only does this greatly simplify test delivery in terms of structure; it also makes it possible to carry out parallel large-scale testing, e.g. in the classroom.
