Planning for the Questionmark 2013 Users Conference in Baltimore, Maryland, March 3 – 6 is well underway.
We have begun posting descriptions of breakout sessions and are pleased to announce the return — by popular demand — of two pre-conference workshops.
Both of these all-day sessions will take place on Sunday March 3, 2013:
Questionmark Boot Camp: Basic Training for Beginners, with Questionmark Trainer Rick Ault
Learn the basics of using Questionmark technologies before the conference starts. Beginning Questionmark users are invited to bring their laptops to a basic training course.
Get into gear with hands-on practice in creating questions, putting together an assessment, then scheduling it, taking it and seeing the results. Start off with some first-hand experience that will give you a firm footing for learning more at the conference.
Criterion-Referenced Test Development, with Sharon Shrock and Bill Coscarelli
Sharon and Bill are the authors of Criterion-Referenced Test Development: Technical and Legal Guidelines for Corporate Training. Participants in their pre-conference workshop, which is based on the book, will explore testing best practices and will learn how to meet rigorous competency testing standards and interpret test results correctly.
This workshop 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.
You can save $200 by registering for the conference on or before November 16th. You can sign up for a workshop at the same time or add in a workshop later. It’s up to you!
