Censeo’s short-course approach and associated tools will help test authors dramatically improve the quality of their tests, with only a minimal investment in time and cost.
Maitland, FL (PRWEB) June 16, 2007
Censeo Corporation announces today the launch of a formalized, in-depth training program for test authors. The interactive course, titled "Increasing the Quality of Your Knowledge Assessments," is available via web conference or may be conducted at a client site.
Facilitated by a Censeo Industrial-Organizational Psychologist with years of experience in test design and construction, this program is designed to expose test authors to a variety of important best practices and tools.
Topics covered include the benefits of well-constructed tests and the consequences of poorly constructed tests; the test development process; defining test objectives and creating a test blueprint; question types, their uses, and criteria for writing high-quality questions; tips for test review and piloting; test item analysis; and test design and authoring FAQs.
At the conclusion of the session, participants will be able to clearly understand the importance of creating high-quality tests, follow a psychometrically sound process for constructing tests, create and use test blueprints, and recognize and avoid problems commonly found in poorly designed tests.
"No question that testing employee knowledge is becoming a priority for more and more companies. However, in most cases, the personnel being asked to design and author these tests are not trained in the basic psychometric fundamentals of valid test construction," stated Censeo’s Director of Consulting Services, Dr. Michael Zia Mian. "Censeo’s short-course approach and associated tools will help test authors dramatically improve the quality of their tests, with only a minimal investment in time and cost."
