The Malaysian Psychometrics Association (MPA) is Malaysia's first organization devoted exclusively to Psychometrics, a scientific discipline that focuses on the theories and techniques of psychological and educational measurement. The MPA was founded by the Psychometrics Cluster, MIMOS Berhad, on 30th June, 2011 to encourage and promote Psychometrics both in Malaysia and internationally.
The MPA works hard to bring together practitioners of Psychometrics with those who are interested in this field. We strive to provide both a platform for collaboration and research, and a Malaysian voice for disseminating knowledge about Psychometrics and awareness of its benefits. The MPA also aims to promote the use of psychometric procedures in fields where they are currently under-applied.
The first president of the MPA is consulting psychometrician Dr. Haniza Yon.
