I had the pleasure of working with Sid in connection with setting a pass score for a specialized certification exam in a unique compliance field. Before this experience, I was completely unaware of the psychometrics field. Sid was an incredible facilitator for the score exercise — a friendly, clear communicator and most of all knowledgeable. I learned so much working with him and would welcome the opportunity to do so again!

Sid conducted an external evaluation for CONNECT Strategic Alliances, one of my clients on an immigration-related project. His collaborative approach, thoroughness and honest feedback was much appreciated. Of particular note for us – the literature review was fantastic. With a strong understanding of evaluation and excellent listening skills, Sid provided us with superior service. I’ve worked with many evaluators in the academia/ non-profit field in the Toronto area and highly recommend Sid’s work.

Sid managed and analyzed a large, complex database, making sense of the information. His report was on time and written in clear, concise language and his findings easily understood. He presented an overview of his report at our department meeting and his conclusions helped guide our unit’s decision-making moving forward with our project. I would not hesitate to re-engage Sid for future opportunities, and would recommend him to any seeking his expertise.

The committee that worked with Dr. Sid Ali found his work to be both helpful and insightful. His review and summary to our Board of Directors helped inform our decision-making and assured us that offering Junior Achievement programs to younger students could indeed provide useful and impactful information to students below grade 7 in age. Dr. Ali was pleasant to work with and provided a final summary of the work that we have referred to since completing the committee work.
