Back in the Spring we launched an initiative to find out more about our clinical test users – your likes, your experiences, your needs, and how you are using assessments in your day-to-day clinical practice. As part of that initiative we composed a survey which went out to many of you across both the public and private sectors and across different areas of assessment within the clinical realm. We also reached out to our university links across the country to establish how we can best support test use within academia, and find out how we can get our assessments in the hands of the next generation of test users.
We would like to take this opportunity to say a huge ‘thank you’ to all of those who took the survey for their valuable contributions. We received a fantastic response and we really appreciate those of you who were able to take the time to feed back to us.
Your survey results have really positioned us for 2018, as we are now better able to understand your assessment needs in terms of future development — such as the importance of UK-normed tests in your test toolkit, and the growing need for online (or at least electronically-scored) measures. Being a publisher of our own psychometric assessments, this information will be incredibly useful for our publishing plans going forward – making sure that we develop the tools that you and your clients really need, that will add real value to your clinical practice. We’ve got some exciting projects in the pipeline and we’re looking forward to sharing them with you as plans develop. For the moment, keep an eye out for our 2018 clinical catalogue, which will contain further details of what’s to come.
Hogrefe is dedicated to keeping up-to-date with the latest trends in the industry and maintaining active links with practitioners is a key part of that. While our survey has now closed, if you have any feedback or ideas you would like to communicate with us, we are always happy to hear from you. Feel free to email us at email@example.com.
