"I would certainly encourage interpreters to become part of this process," advised Orlin Marquez, President of the Medical Interpreter Network of Georgia. "Certification has been a long time coming. We are thrilled that this effort is finally making significant progress, and we eagerly await a recognized national certification for the valuable services provided by medical interpreters on a daily basis."

The National Board Written and Performance Exams were developed under the guidance of PSI Services, an industry-leading provider of professional testing services. Interpreter focus groups, a national job analysis survey, and input from subject-matter experts helped define the test content in this complex statistical and scientific process. Test scoring guidelines were also established. A report on the test development and validation process will be provided following the analysis of the pilot results on the National Board website at http://www.certifiedmedicalinterpreters.org.

"This pilot phase is critical to the test certification process as a key component in ensuring the reliability and validity of the test instruments," said John Weiner, Chief Science Officer with PSI Services.

The test design team included medical interpreters who hold medical degrees, professionals with medical interpreter test design experience, those involved in establishing national interpreter standards, medical interpreting trainers, and testers with experience administering interpreter testing.
