Alpine Testing Solutions, Inc. (Alpine) announced today that it will actively expand its work in the K-12 education market. Tracey Hembry, Ph.D., Director of Education and Senior Psychometrician at Alpine, will lead the initiative.

“The assessment industry has seen tremendous consolidation over the past few years, resulting in a need for organizations such as Alpine to become more active in the market.” stated Brian Adams, President and CEO of Alpine. “While the market is dominated by large organizations competing for comprehensive state-wide contracts, there has always been a need for experienced, independent, third-party providers to engage at critical points such as alignment studies and standard setting studies. Alpine is ideally positioned to provide such services without fear of conflict of interest.”

“Alpine is fortunate to have Tracey leading this initiative,” continued Adams. “She is the embodiment of the organization’s passion and excitement to make a greater contribution in the education space.”

“With 54 employees – over 20% of whom are psychometricians – we are a relatively small company and therefore do not compete for statewide assessment development and delivery contracts. This makes us an independent voice with regards to work in this industry,” said Hembry. “We are focused on delivering high-quality consultation and support in the areas of test development and psychometrics. Our staff has experience across a wide range of industries and applications, which lends to our ability to provide custom and creative solutions.”

According to Hembry, a number of attributes differentiate Alpine and make it ideally qualified for work in the education space. High among the reasons to work with Alpine are its references and its quality work product. Many of Alpine’s clients, according to Hembry, have worked with Alpine for more than 10 years, which indicates the level of service and commitment Alpine has to its clients and the benefit they see to having Alpine as a partner. Hembry also mentioned that, as a fully employee-owned company, Alpine’s staff are literally invested in their work and the success of their clients.
