Test Comparison Checklist

Some testing companies employ à la carte billing, which can
be deceptive and expensive when all their test-related costs are added up. Here,
we are referring to the following items and services being separately billed:


þ 
Test applications

þ 
Test upgrades


þ
 Volume
discounts

þ 
Test booklets


þ 



Database research

þ 
Scanner scoring

þ 
Training manuals


þ
 Support
services


þ
 Annual
summary reports

þ 
Staff training


þ
 Test
standardization

þ

 
Local standardization

And, that’s not counting offering three test administration
modes, consultation, report individualization, training tutorials and more.
Behavior Data Systems, Ltd. (BDS) only charges the one test unit fee.
Everything else is included in that test unit fee. All Behavior Data Systems tests are
available in English and Spanish. Behavior Data Systems tests can be administered in
paper-pencil format, on the computer screen and in computer-generated human
voice audio.
