Statistical Validation

Validated and Reliable
The Hadron Group is dedicated to ensuring that our brain based human development products are supported by statistical validation and reliability research. The Brain PathWays™ on-line assessment instrument is the same instrument used by organizations like AutoZone, Graybar Electric, Nestle Purina, Monsanto, NASA, PricewaterhouseCoopers, Tennessee Valley Authority, Veterans Administration and Washington University through our BRAIN MODE power®…The Neuroscience of Business… delivery system. The system has been in use since 1993 with facilitated workshops, seminars and key note addresses delivered by Hadron and our licensed and master certified Distributor Partners.statistics

Our products have been repeatedly tested for reliability through the highest of standards of statistical research methods conducted by independent psychometric experts. Our assessments measure 5 scalar measures: three sensory pathways (Visual, Kinesthetic and Auditory) and two cognitive thinking pathways (Sequential and Global). Our instruments display two key aspects of construct validity: unidimensionality and internal consistency. Unidimensionality means each of the scalar measures are independent entities and not linked to one another. Our internal Alpha reliabilities are in the range of 0.7 to 0.8 that exceeds many other psychometric instruments.

Content validity (face validity) typically exceeds 95% in facilitated workshops (North America, Europe, Asia/Pacific, Australia, South and Central America). Participants ask questions, engage in exercises and respond how well their report results align with their strengths, blind spots, preferences and life experiences. Experiential workshops continue to demonstrate the cross-cultural application and acceptance of our neuroscience technology. People feel safe, affirmed and excited about their brain uniqueness and potential.

Test and retest results show that most people retain their original preferences. However, their scores frequently increase. Consciously using the report tools increase sensory perception and thinking power.

Why is Validation and Reliability Important?
Simply stated, many instruments are either not validated or have low reliabilities. It’s a good and prudent practice to ask if statistical validation has been conducted and if the research results are available for review.

Statistical validation reveals whether an assessment instrument is truly measuring what it is proclaimed to measure. If an assessment instrument has not been statistically validated, or if the construct validities are below accepted psychometric standards, you cannot trust the results.
