Certification & Licensure

At Measurement Incorporated and Measurement Research Associates (MRA), a division of Measurement Incorporated, every project is unique. We begin with a proven methodology for assessing your specific needs and requirements and design a roadmap for achieving your goals. Then we build a custom solution based on best practices that have been refined over our 30 year history in large-scale, high-stakes assessment. The result is a program that meets your needs precisely.

We offer the same high-quality, high-stakes test development and delivery expertise to corporations and certification bodies as the educational institutions we serve throughout the nation. Measurement Incorporated is a recognized leader and active participant in the professional certification and licensure industry. We continue to build on our reputation of quality and outstanding service to clients by offering the flexibility, reliability, and accountability which is necessary to build a quality program and a valid and reliable certification assessment.


In addition to the reputation for excellence Measurement Incorporated has achieved in the field of educational assessment, we also have a depth and range of experience in the area of professional certification and licensure exam development and delivery.


MI is committed to accuracy and project responsibility at every juncture, which is a significant factor over the years in our being chosen to provide services to the Association of Equipment Management Professionals, the Association of American Medical Colleges, Duke University, Educational Records Bureau, LearningExpress, the National Association of Judiciary Interpreters and Translators, the North Carolina Association of Educators, and the Professional Meeting Planners Network.


As a midsize, full-service testing firm, we are large enough to provide a broad set of testing services and experiences, yet small enough to ensure the personal involvement of our senior executives and staff. We are flexible in designing unique, highly customized programs at fair and reasonable prices. MI’s experts view collaboration and customization as essential to building successful testing programs which ultimately serve the unique demands of each client’s candidate population.

  • Job task/practice analysis
  • Test design and development
  • Item writing and review
