    • Balanced for content, alignment, and difficulty
    • Yield comparable interpretations (e.g., same NSS to NPR relationship)
    • Produce same detailed reports at skill and item level
    • Can be used in pre-post approaches
    • Can be equated to one another and used interchangeably
    • Also called parallel forms
