…some of whom actually belong to this association, by the way.
The all ASHI licensing board in Kansas has to choose a test for granting licenses in their state. Of course, as we know, it will be the NHIE.
The claim that is used in selling this test to the various states is that it is “psychometrically evaluated”.
We know that before ASHI first turned the test over to the folks who now manage it for them, they paid a significant (I heard “tens of thousands”) of membership dues to actually have an independent agency provide a psychometric evaluation. That was some time ago.
Since then, some new questions have been added to the test and some of the old questions have been dropped.
Are we to believe that this test has continued to be psychometrically evaluated for tens of thousands of dollars each time this has been done by the association that has had, at times, to be financially assisted by ASHI?
This test is being used, presently, in some states to deny access to jobs by citizens of that state wanting to be home inspectors…under the questionable premise that it is STILL psychometrically evaluated, in spite of the changes that have been made to it.
Do you think that there are grounds for a class action lawsuit that would challenge…and answer the question, once and for all…as to the validity and usefulness of the NHIE?
