Product Details

Q-global® is Pearson's new web-based system for test administration, scoring and reporting. It houses the industry's gold standard in assessment tools and is accessible from any computer connected to the Internet. Q-global helps you quickly and efficiently organize examinee information, generate scores, and produce accurate, comprehensive reports.

Test Content

Q-global houses a large number of assessments and that list continues to grow. Review the assessment list.

Pricing and Ordering

The basic model for all Q-global pricing is a simple, per-use fee that will be variable based on the service provided (on-screen administration, simple scoring, interpretive report) and the content delivered.

  • In most cases, Q-global pricing will match pricing of Q Local reports identically.
  • Pearson also offers many quantity break discounts for Q-global reports ordered in larger quantities.

For more information regarding specific per-use report pricing in Q-global, please visit the respective product web pages on PearsonClinical.com.

System Requirements

As a new Q-global user, you will need the following:

  • A computer with access to the Internet through a standard browser (see supported browser versions below)
  • A Q-global account that has been activated and credited for use.

Your operating system and browser should show up in the list below in order to run the Q-global software:

Scoring

Two options for scoring and reporting are now available on Q-global.

The first option is to pay per-report.

The basic model for Q-global pricing is a simple per-use fee that will vary based on the service provided (on-screen administration, simple scoring, interpretive report) and the content delivered.

  • In most cases, Q-global pricing will match pricing of Q Local reports.
  • Volume discounts may also be available for Q-global reports ordered in larger quantities.

For more information regarding specific per-use report pricing in Q-global, please visit the respective product web pages on this website: PearsonClinical.com

The second option is an unlimited-use scoring subscription.

For a limited number of products (see the Pricing & Ordering tab here on Q-global or the specific product page), a one-, three- or five-year subscription is available for generating scores and reports for individual users.  This may be a better option for customers who administer a given assessment several times each year—and don't want to worry about keeping track of their report expenses.

No matter which option you choose, your scoring comes with all of the advantages of Q-global:

  • Convenience of scoring on any device:  laptop, tablet, mobile device…Mac or PC
  • Secure servers using industry best practices for data encryption and data storage
  • Account and user management, archiving and exporting features

To order reports or subscriptions, please visit the specific product web pages on PearsonClinical.com

FAQs

Questions

Frequently asked questions follow. Click on a question to see the response.

platform-functionality

PLATFORM Functionality

You can access your Q-global account through any Internet-connected device to manage and retrieve examinee information, generate scores from assessment data, and produce accurate, comprehensive assessment reports. All of these activities are performed in a secure, private web environment that helps professionals streamline their assessment workflow while complying with widely accepted data privacy standards. The web-based nature of Q-global provides users with unprecedented flexibility in accessing and performing their work anytime and anywhere.

MANAGE ACCOUNTS

Your Q-global account is initially set up with a main parent account. From this account you can create sub-accounts as a way of managing sites, departments, or examiners. The system is flexible enough to allow you to control how your account hierarchy is structured. Showing your account structure in this tree format provides you with a visual representation of your account, sub-accounts, and users.

Account hierarchies allow the parent account to grant certain access to sub-account users. This hierarchical structure aids in generating reports at different levels for those products that have group reports available. New sub-accounts will inherit (auto-populate) the attributes (address, regional setting, portfolios, and qualification levels) of the parent account and may be modified for the sub-account.

EXAMINEES TAB

The first page displayed when you log in to the system is the Examinee List. From here you can view and manage Examinee records as well as assign an assessment and add or delete an examinee. In addition, you also have the option of importing examinee demographics into the system or exporting examinee demographics, items/raw scores, and derived scores on assessments that have been previously reported on.

GROUP TAB

Groups are designed to easily assign one or more assessments to a group of examinees. This offers users who administer assessments to larger populations an efficient means of managing assessments, scores, and reports.

REPORT TAB

From the Report tab you can search for a specific assessment record or records. If you do not want to narrow down the results, you can leave the field blank. Any field that does not contain a value will be ignored by the system when the search is executed. The results are returned in a table in the bottom portion of the page.
