Building a Healthy Testing Ecosystem
Track: Security, Records and Data Management
The testing ecosystem is broad – involving not only test takers and test staff, but also score users, government regulators, and even the media. While surrogate test takers, item harvesters, brain dumps and collusive test staff pose risks to testing assets and valid test results, the honest members of your testing ecosystem can help enhance security. How can testing programs leverage honest test takers and well-trained staff to better ensure a secure test experience? What methods and tools are available to testing programs to develop and leverage a healthy testing ecosystem, and at what cost? Join experienced professionals as they answer these questions and discuss innovative tools and processes for improving the testing ecosystem and test security, including proctor training and certification, tools to use for detecting cheating attempts, and tools to encourage honest test takers. You’ll walk away with practical methods for improving security by leveraging your testing ecosystem.
