“Always Valid And Reliable”
Assalamualaikum and May Peace Be Upon You Welcome to the Center for Testing, Measurement and Appraisal (CeTMA) portal, Universiti Utara Malaysia (UUM). CeTMA is one of the centers of excellence at Universiti Utara Malaysia. Its establishment reflects the university’s deep concern for the need in creating awareness about behavioral implications in business and education. At CeTMA, we aim to serve organizations in the areas of psychometric testing, and assessments and personality profiling. Among others, we offer expertise in testing, measurement and appraisal; survey research; contract research; consultation; instrument development, data collection and professional data analysis services; and customized training. This portal aims to provide information, guidance and a communication channel for our clients who come from a wide variety of fields, disciplines and walks of life to obtain information on the training courses, research, consultation and other services that are provided by CeTMA as well as other relevant information. Given fast development of a knowledge-based economy, I hope, through the use of this portal, CeTMA will better contribute towards the existence of knowledgeable employees that are needed in public service today. It is my sincere hope that this portal will benefit all of you. We at CeTMA in turn will try as best as we could to ensure that all the information displayed is up-to-date.
