Strategic partnership integrates solutions to provide performance-based assessments that deliver flexible, all-in-one testing for worldwide customers

(SAN ANTONIO, TX) – March 31, 2020 – Pearson VUE, the leader in computer-based testing, today announced a multi-year Master Services Agreement with TrueAbility®, a leading performance-based assessment platform that certifies today’s workforce.  TrueAbility’s platform will allow Pearson VUE to deliver innovative certification exams focusing on performance-based assessments while also improving efficiency and streamlining exam operations.

“This agreement with TrueAbility will help us deliver a fully integrated and globally scalable performance-based certification program,” said Bob Whelan, president of Pearson Assessments. “While our Pearson VUE-Certiport group has a rich history of successfully delivering millions of performance-based lab exams over the years, with TrueAbility as a partner, we’re now in a position to give our customers an expanded, one-stop-shop experience with cutting-edge technology.”

Through the integration of TrueAbility’s performance-based assessment platform into Pearson VUE’s test delivery technology, Pearson VUE clients gain the ability to ensure that their candidates can accurately demonstrate their competencies and skills in a real-world environment.

Capable of supporting the wide range of certification program needs across industries, test sponsors can now assess candidates’ abilities by using profession-specific applications and environments through the performance-based testing platform. The integrated solution also enables test sponsors to create stand-alone performance-based exams, or exams that combine performance-based testing with knowledge-based questions, using all of the test design features and flexibility the Pearson VUE platform is known for.

“Performance-based assessment captures more educational objectives than any other assessment method alone by allowing an individual to engage in a live environment to perform real-world tasks,” states Frederick Mendler, CEO of TrueAbility. “As the demand for performance-based assessment increases, TrueAbility is excited to partner with Pearson VUE, a recognized industry leader, to deliver a unified candidate experience.”
