PRESENTED BY DRS. MANNY STRAEHLE & LIBERTY MUNSON, AERE
In this presentation, you will learn the basic concepts of psychometrics and test design, development, and administration. The presenters will provide an overview of the steps involved in the exam design and development process, define validity, reliability, and fairness and how each are ensured throughout the process, provide general guidelines and key considerations related to the execution of each step of exam development (virtual versus in person sessions; number of subject matter experts), and discuss the design, development, and delivery requirements of your assessments and exams.
In addition, you will be ensure that your credentialing program meets your programmatic and strategic goals including accreditation requirements (ANSI/ISO/IEC, NCCA, AERE’s Credential Quality Standard). Understanding these concepts will provide the foundation for making better decisions that balance psychometric requirements with the business realities that you face in managing your program (e.g., limited resources, time, budget, and legal risks).
In addition, the presenters will discuss psychometric rules of thumb and shed light on what psychometricians really mean when they say “it depends,” what factors must be considered, and how those factors affect the decision that is made.
