Scaling performance based testing
Track: Test Development and Administration
Performance testing has become a 'hot' topic recently, as credentialing organizations look to performance testing as a method to better assess candidate competency and skill proficiency. Further, as more employers look for credential holders to have verified skills, performance testing has accelerated in its use.
An issue that persists in performance testing is its scalability. The evolution of technology has improved the ability to deploy and deliver these tests in an automated fashion, and score them automatically. This presentation will focus on common methods to automate the performance testing process and common pitfalls encountered in performance testing. Examples of certification programs that have implemented these techniques will be used to provide practical takeaways.
