More Examples


The University of Cambridge Psychometrics Centre believes that online adaptive testing should be available to everyone. That is why we’ve built Concerto: a powerful and user-friendly platform that empowers experts and beginners alike to make better tests, without needing to write a single line of code. There are no set-up costs, no hidden licence fees and no limitations. This ensures our community of researchers and practitioners can take on both short and long term assessment projects with confidence.

Concerto harmonises the statistical power of the R programming language, the security of MySQL databases and the flexibility of HTML to deliver an outstanding performance. These instruments work in unison, giving users unparalleled freedom and control over the design of their assessments. In-built algorithms for score calculation and report generation ensure a rewarding experience for participants, whatever the context.
