The AS&K Approach

You have a survey. You have a test or an assessment. How do you know it really works?

AS&K offers three services for your customer or employee surveys and assessments.

  1. Content Development

    Are you asking the right questions? Is your survey or assessment content measuring the right stuff? Too many leaders make decisions from flawed measurements tools. AS&K creates or revises survey and assessment content - instructions, rating scales, questions, and other design features.
  2. Psychometrics

    How do you know that your survey or assessment tool works as intended? AS&K uses basic and advanced psychometric techniques to ensure that your measurements are reliable and valid. We fix flawed surveys and assessments--we make good surveys and assessments better.
  3. Statistical Analysis

    Crosstabs aren't enough. The most valuable insights often require more complex statistical methods and data modeling. AS&K uses basic and advanced statistical methods to uncover the patterns, trends, and relationship hidden in your data. We ensure you gain the maximum possible business intelligence from your data.

Are you asking the right questions? Are you getting the most out of your customer satisfaction surveys and customer data? Are you getting all of the business intelligence you can out of your investment in leadership and organizational surveys? The big consulting firms provide tabulation of results, not insightful analysis. How effective is your training? Are you teaching the right stuff? You cannot improve workforce competence if you don’t measure it. Are you hiring and promoting the right people? Are your assessments legally defensible? Are you sure your top people aren’t going to leave?
