The logistics of providing hundreds of thousands of testing materials to thousands of test sites while maintaining quality, security, and strict client deadlines can be quite complex. MI has been providing this service successfully for decades by implementing and continually improving quality control methods to minimize the threat of breaches and lost materials.
Measurement Incorporated Printing Services
MI typically produces between one million and six million test booklets annually. We accomplish this volume through our own in-house digital printing equipment in conjunction with established local printers. For printing of scannable forms, we utilize the services of nationally known, reputable printing vendors, requiring of them the same high professional standards and security precautions as we demand of ourselves. Our editors are trained to detect and correct errors related to high-stakes tests and ancillary materials, and all products must complete a series of reviews before final printing.
Measurement Incorporated Printing Services also provides copying and printing service to the public. Please contact Lisa McCown for assistance with brochures, invitations, business cards, etc.
Secure Shipping and Storage
MI’s Support Services staff includes over three dozen full-time and numerous seasonal employees to support distribution, collection, and warehousing activities. They are familiar with the unique requirements associated with the handling of large-scale, high-stakes assessments. MI developed an internal tracking system that can locate individual test documents at any given time while they are in our possession. We adhere to stringent security measures to assure clients and students that their tests, responses, and results remain confidential.
Our headquarters and main processing center in Durham, North Carolina, has a total of 270,000 square feet of space, 36,600 of which is devoted to staging and storage. MI also leases an additional 100,000 square feet of shipping and storage space in four nearby warehouses. Each of our additional nine scoring centers retains an appropriate amount of staging and storage space as well as the experienced personnel needed to accommodate the large volume of materials sent there.
MI can provide short-term or long-term storage and retrieval of tests for our clients as well as secure, in-house shredding and recycling of materials once a testing program is complete.
