The course was incredibly well pitched. It was the best course I have ever attended in terms of quality of teaching!
The introduction to R was very useful for me, Aiden and Chris were good teachers and very helpful.
A really great atmosphere and great teaching that fostered a collaborative learning environment.
I liked the 'spirit' of the workshop which was intense, motivating and very hands-on - thank you so much for a brilliant course!
An excellent three days; it was incredibly informative, well-paced and well organised.
This course was well paced, informative and I think everybody enjoyed it and got a lot of out of it. This is rare in either stats or software courses so amazing to get it right on both counts
I really enjoyed the course. The tutors were both excellent at presenting very technical information and I thought the course was very well organised to address the range of knowledge across the participants and make sure everyone benefited the same.
I am very excited about applying the techniques you've showed me to my own data!
Thank you for your kindness, your interest and (speaking as a developmental psychologist!), your true availability, sensitivity and responsiveness to every question asked or any request for help.
All the things that I have learned will, surely, improve my skills as a researcher.
A really great atmosphere and great teaching that fostered a collaborative learning environment

See computer-adaptive testing in action with this demo test that plots theta, SEM, item information and test information as you answer questions. This allows you to see what Concerto does in the background.
This numerical sequence assessment uses state-of-the-art adaptive scoring algorithms to optimise the difficulty of items based on the numeric cognitive ability of the respondent.
How well can you manipulate and match shapes in 3D? This challenging cognitive test uses automatic item generation to present unique spatial reasoning items
To what extent do you incorporate innovative mindsets into your leadership style? Are you collaborative or independent, transformative or consolidatory – find out with this short test
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.
Concerto is an open platform, and we love to hear about its diverse applications. Sign up below to receive occasional updates on upcoming workshops, new features and more from our diverse community.
