Combining Proven Test Development Expertise and Technology Enabled Solutions to Meet Evolving Marketplace Needs
Wednesday, November 9, 2011
5:00 p.m. - 6:00 p.m.

As the testing industry continues to evolve, greater domain knowledge and technology innovation will prove to be critical. Hear first-hand the latest results from a recently conducted study of test development professionals on what they see as their key market needs and opportunities.

The Advantages of Rapid Test Development
Friday, November 11, 2011
10:45 a.m. - 12:00 p.m.

It is often advantageous to reduce the time it takes for an item to pass through writing, reviewing and editing phases prior to being placed on an exam form. "Rapid Test Development" (RTD), a process developed by Prometric in partnership with one of its clients, shortens the item development timeline while maintaining item quality and exam integrity. The session will outline the process of RTD, identify benefits and limitations of this strategy, and discuss potential modifications to the RTD process in order to tailor it to individual groups' needs and resources. The financial and logistical benefits to reducing item development timeframes will also be covered.

"As an industry leader, Prometric is able to share its unique perspective and proprietary insight about recent practices and research with test sponsor organizations in all areas of the industry," said Steve Williams, senior vice president of test development solutions. "Using recent experiences with our valued clients and disclosing information from our recently conducted research study, Prometric will be sharing data with attendees that can be applied to their own programs."
