Professional Development starts with Assessment

BIMe Individual Discovery is an online assessment that establishes a person's BIM knowledge and experience. Using an intuitive interface, individuals can assess themselves - or can be assessed by recruiters and employers - against BIM competency topics established through academic research. Once an individual's current Competency Profile has been established, it can be compared to a Target Profile representing an organizational role, a recruiter's search criteria or a project's specific requirements.

BIMe individual assessments are not memory tests and do not measure software abilities; they establish the extent of construction knowledge and depth of BIM experience across a range of technical and non-technical topics - including:

  • BIM Strategy Development
  • Collaboration and Facilitation
  • Team Management
  • Project Management
  • Model Management

Once the assessment is complete, the system generates a summary report (single or total scores are never used) to guide learning,recruitment and performance improvement.

A free BIMe Individual Discovery (X1 - 55 items) is available to all registered users!

If you like to learn more about individual competencies and their assessment, please read BIM ThinkSpace Episode 17. For a more detailed understanding of the research underpinning individual competency assessment, please download "An integrated approach to BIM competency assessment, acquisition and application" (Succar et. al, 2013), a peer-reviewed journal paper available through academia.edu.
