TestToolbox was Born of Need.


Several years ago, our small psychometric consulting business was based on spreadsheets and macros. We felt the same pain as every test development team that has ever relied on spreadsheets. The spreadsheets and the power of our desktop computers limited our capacity. The spreadsheets had to be perfectly formatted, the statistical calculation processes would take hours to run, and keeping track of spreadsheets became a nightmare.
Our initial idea was to replicate the macros on a server class computer in order to speed up the processing. The initial version of TestToolbox was essentially a simple web-based front end to a system that replaced the spreadsheet macros. This evolutionary change worked, sped up the processing, and increased our capacity. Eventually we reached a point where our resources were again constrained. The REVOLUTIONARY idea that led to today's version of TestToolbox came from this constraint. That revolutionary idea was to take the tools that we had used to run our consulting business and make them available to our customers. That has made all the difference.
