As we continue to build the program for the Questionmark 2012 Users Conference we are delighted to announce two full-day pre-conference workshops at the Ritz Carlton New Orleans on Tuesday, March 20, 2012:
Criterion-Referenced Test Development, with Sharon Shrock and Bill Coscarelli. Sharon and Bill — who have presented outstanding keynote addresses at two previous users conferences — will help participants in this workshop understand testing best practices, meet rigorous competency testing standards and interpret test results correctly.
The workshop, based on Sharon and Bill’s book, Criterion-Referenced Test Development: Technical and Legal Guidelines for Corporate Training, is ideal for trainers, instructional designers, course developers and training managers. Understanding the principles of skillful test authoring will help you create ethical and dependable testing programs that yield meaningful, measurable results.
Here’s a great way to learn the basics of using Questionmark technologies before the conference starts: Bring your laptop to a basic training course! Questionmark Trainer Rick Ault will give you hands-on practice in creating questions, putting together an assessment, then scheduling it, taking it and seeing the results. If you are just starting out — or if you have little experience with Questionmark — joining this workshop will give you a head start and help you get the most from the conference program.
Whether you add a workshop to your plans or not, now is a great time to register for the conference: Early-bird registration savings of $200 are available through December 9th.
