BALTIMORE–(EMWNews)–Prometric, a leading global provider of technology-enabled testing and

assessment services, today announced it has been awarded a $2.75 million

contract by the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) to

provide computer-based delivery services and statistical analysis for

the registration examination taken by USPTO Patent Attorney and Patent

Agent applicants.

After a competitive bid process, Prometric was selected for its ability

to ensure that the USPTO registration examination will continue to be

sound, legally defensible and an accurate measure of legal qualification

of applicants.

For the awarded contact, Prometric will provide:

  • Exam Delivery Services: computer based testing administration,

    including scheduling, systems management and results processing

  • Access to Prometric U.S. test center network: USPTO Patent Attorney

    and Patent Agent applicants have access to Prometrics

    vast network of test centers where they can take the computer-based

    examination

  • Strategic Consulting Services: Prometric will provide statistical

    analysis of item performance on the registration exam

Because the USPTOs

registration examination determines whether candidates seeking to become

Patent Attorneys or Patent Agents have the necessary knowledge of patent

law, practice and procedure, the integrity and accuracy of the testing

process is paramount, said Ray Kelly, Senior

Vice President, Sales and Client Services at Prometric. Our

extensive experience and understanding of the specific testing

requirements of Federal agencies for secure

test delivery or results processing in particular

consistently sets Prometric apart and ensures that we can work in

cooperative partnership with government clients by bringing rigor and

standards of excellence to the table in the registration exam process.
