Inference LLC specializes in extracting stable meaningful patterns from survey data, particularly in attempt to measure complex and intangible constructs, such as achievement, development, quality, perceptions, engagement, and preference.

We are strongly grounded in practice and methods that put human judgment, experience, purpose, and theory first in deriving and driving meaning throughout the entire process – from test construction to interpretation and decision- making.  We then validate these qualitative judgments with quantitative evidence to provide insight into what is and is not working.

Our innovative methodologies provide evidence to support what inferences we can make from the data, which ones we cannot make, and exactly where interventions are needed. This gives our clients confidence in which decisions they can make based on their data, which they cannot, and why.
