QAI´s online Role Based Skill Assessment(RBSA) is a scientific skill assessment tool, designed to provide an understanding of the current skill and proficiency level of Testing & QA professionals. The assessment applies to all levels of testing professionals, regardless of the nature, type, size or complexity of projects in which they are engaged. It is flexible and can be customized to match the definition of an organization´s specific testing roles and required competencies.
The RBSA is completely customized to an organizational context. The customization starts at the first step itself, by aligning ROLES an organization has, with SKILL AREAS. Each Skill AREA is further subdivided into SKILL CATEGORIES, SKILL AREAS and SKILL UNITS. For each skill unit, a proficiency level is assigned by the organization, indicating the extent to which an individual is essentially required to perform well in one’s role. The comparison is always between expected proficiency levels that are defined by an organization and current proficiency level of a candidate once he / she completes a test. The framework is aligned to industry reference frameworks like CMMi, TMMi, TOGAF and standards like ISO and IEEE.
We currently provide 3 skill areas : Software Testing & QA, Program Management and Process Improvement , 4 major skill categories :Technology, Process & Technique, Tools & Automation and Management & Support, 89 Skill Areas and 374 Skill Units across 4 proficiency levels.

Adaptive Evaluation Methodology
To ensure that each individual is evaluated in a comprehensive manner, our evaluation tool is designed based on the adaptive evaluation methodology. This ensures that no question is repeated and questions are selected so as to maximize the precision of the exam, based on what is known about the examinee from previous questions. From the examinee’s perspective, the difficulty of the exam seems to be tailoring itself to his or her level of ability.

Based on the gaps identified in the assessment, our SME experts would work on creating an individualized learning plan for every individual whose assessment is completed. In addition, this enables us to educate the next steps and investments that the individual or the workgroup needs to take for improving their employability quotient in the profession of Software Testing.
