Dr. Chris Beauchamp is the Vice-President of Psychometrics at Yardstick Assessment Strategies (YAS), and an adjunct professor of psychometrics at the University of Ottawa. Dr. Beauchamp began his career in psychometrics by working on – and eventually leading – the examination development portion of the CPNRE. Over a period of 12 years, he oversaw the examination development process. This includes activities related to item writing, item review, examination committee meetings, standard setting, competency development, and examination blueprinting. He also worked closely with regulators on the maintenance and modernization of the CPRNE, including the transition from paper-based to computer-based testing.
Outside of his work on the CPRNE, Dr. Beauchamp oversees the delivery of a wide variety of psychometric services at YAS, including: competency profiling, item development, exam-building, standard setting, psychometric analyses, and exam scoring and reporting. He has extensive experience in high-stakes examination development and administration, examination security, and a variety of statistical analyses; as well as job analysis, test specification design, examination policy and procedure design, curriculum review and mapping, strategic planning, and computer-based testing transition. He has collaborated with organizations both large and small, including projects with licensure, certification, not-for profit, government, and sector council credentialing bodies.
Dr. Beauchamp has a Ph.D. in Experimental Psychology from the University of Ottawa; a B.A. (Honours) in Psychology from the University of Ottawa; and a diploma in Accounting from Canadore College
