About Us

We Love Data

image20



PROBE Consulting specializes in applied research and the development of web-based assessment systems. Since 1988, we have developed assessment systems that turn voluminous data into actionable information. For more than thirty-two years, we have helped our partners to statistically tell their story. We love data!

Why Us?

image21


  

We have helped colleges improve retention and graduation rates. We have helped small businesses understand who their promotors or distractors are, and why they took those positions. We have helped churches and other non-profit organizations evaluate their leadership, survey their congregations or clients, and engage in professional strategic planning. We have helped numerous students complete their college degrees. Why PROBE? Since 1988, we have been in “preparation for the future and measuring success“ business.

Three Decades of TechnoPsychology!

image22


TechnoPsychology involves the application of scientific approach for practical purposes, specifically, the methodical study of the interaction among traits and environments (Persons + Situations) to better understand how the connections differentially effect behavior in a given context. We study the Personality of an organization and use technology, psychology, and research methodology to make an organization the best it can be.   Continuous Improvement is a Verb, not a Noun.  TechnoPsychology is an Action, not a description.  

Survey Artists at Work!!

The Engine driving PROBE Consulting

At the root of 100% of our assessment systems is a survey. If we are collecting data for you, the vehicle for the collection is a well-designed survey. If we develop a writing center registration screen, ask students how they are experiencing PSY 400-01, or ask your customers if they can endorse your business, somewhere in the cyber-background, an optimized, logic-filled survey is running the show. 

The Art and Science of asking questions

 Did you know that the quality of an answer is related to the quality of the question [(r (99999) = 1.0, p < .000000000001)]? Please excuse the statistical hyperbole, but there is, dare we say, a strong relationship between the Q & the A! We have been helping our partners ask quality questions since 1988. We are survey artists at work. The Greek word "techně", often translated as "art," implies mastery of any sort of craft. Send us your survey and we will demonstrate a mastery of item creation. If we cannot make it more efficient, more beautiful, we will refund our review fee. Better yet, let us design one for you. Request a proposal now or drop me a line at cecil_mcmanus@probeconsulting.com let me know what PROBE can paint or sculpt for you on a web-based canvas.

Let us know what you need to know

If you need to interface with alumni, customers, employers, general education students, potential donors, or your congregation, PROBE will develop a professional web-based data collection system. We have been digitizing paper and pencil instruments since 1988. 

We will unlock the information contained in your data and you will spend less money because we automate everything. When we ask Hal to open the bay doors, Hal actually opens the doors.

Higher Education Support Services

Getting my degree!

Institutional Research and Effectiveness Offices

Historically, assessment in higher education was a tangential process that invaded the academy every ten years. Different parts of the academy were evaluated as free-standing units and not as integrated parts of a whole. 

The whole is greater than the sum of its parts

In reality, the success of academic affairs is tied directly to the success of student affairs which is tied directly to the success of the admissions office which is tied directly to the success of financial aid, and so on. Instead of gearing up for a compliance certification, develop an integrated, authentic-learning environment and invite any agency to evaluate it at any time. Let us help you develop an authentic learning environment and a universal SUCCESS CONSTRUCT at your institution.

We offer peace of mind and more time with your family!

We will develop an automated, authentic, institution-wide assessment system, and mainstream a Contextualist-focused web-based assessment process involving students, faculty members, staff, administrators, alumni, and key stakeholders as one holistic unit.

Church Strategic Planning Services

image30

Changing Views of Church and Ministry

IN THE YEAR 2020, WHAT DO LAY PEOPLE WANT IN PASTORS? WHAT DO AMERICANS SEE AND READ ABOUT THEIR CHURCH LEADERS? WHAT ARE CURRENT VIEWS ON WOMEN’S PATH INTO MINISTRY?


These questions were studied in an interdenominational research study entitled the Pulpit & Pew Research Project. The project was funded by Lilly Endowment to assess the state of the pastorate in the United States.

Some of the benefits of strategic planning

In an era of Internet-based church services, televangelism, anti-spiritualism, it is good to have a plan.  What is the overall health of your church? What trends are on the horizon that will impact that health? What direction should you go? How will strategic planning help?


 It allows organizations to be proactive rather than reactive. A strategic plan   

  allows organizations to foresee their future and to prepare accordingly. 

A strategic plan sets up a sense of direction and increases operational efficiency

A strategic plan helps to increase the membership rolls and makes a church more durable
