Castle uses the Scientific Approach of Psychometrics and Instructional Design
We take the scientific approach in developing your custom learning solution to make it more effective. Our team of psychometricians and instructional designers craft a solution for your program’s unique body of knowledge with your learners in mind.
Job/Task Analysis of Your Program
The initial step in creating a custom learning solution is a job/task analysis (JTA) or role-delineation study. The analysis identifies the abilities needed for successful job performance, which ensures that the education and/or examinations to be developed are effective.
Under the direction of Castle learning experts, JTAs are conducted in two phases. First, subject matter experts (SMEs) define the primary knowledge and skills required of the professional. Second, professionals currently working in the field review and validate the SMEs’ view of the profession.
Content outlines/blueprints and examination specifications are created from the JTA process. Castle instructional designers then use this information to begin crafting your custom learning solution.
Instructional Design of Your Material
Instructional design is the process that maximizes instruction through the analysis of specific learning needs and systematic development of learning materials.
Castle instructional designers look to mathetics, or the science of learning, as architecture for effective instructional design. They use technology and multimedia to help ensure that instruction is deliverable and retainable for your target learners.
