The Caviart Group is widely recognized as a leader in the development and implementation of innovative and advanced item types. We have extensive experience in human-scored performance tests as well as computer-delivered interactive and simulation examinations.  We have developed various computer-delivered simulations including the simulations for the architects licensing examination and for use in certifying health professionals in diagnostic medical sonography.


We have developed patent-pending systems and techniques for supporting human scoring systems that are not only much more effective, but also significantly less costly than traditional face-to-face human scoring models. Using our approach and systems has saved clients more than 40% of the previous cost of human scoring their examinations.




The Caviart Group assisted ARDMS in the design and development of the first simulated sonogram machine for use in certification of professional medical sonographers. 

This item type allows candidates to manipulate multiple controls on the simulated console in the testing computer so that they may be assessed in real-world situations.  The item type is so unique that it has been issued a patent.
