Getting Beyond “It Depends”: Psychometricians Debate Hot Topics in Credentialing
Track: Test Development and Administration
This session will be a lively debate on some of hot topics and current challenges faced by credentialing programs. Join a panel of psychometricians as they spar over topics such as the use of competency modeling in credentialing programs, the appropriateness of remote proctoring for high-stakes certification programs, the need for formal assessment as part of the recertification process, and allowing the use of reference materials during certification examinations. After presenting positions and rebuttals on each issue in a standard timed debate format, the panel will entertain questions from the audience and discuss their own professional opinions on each topic.
