Psychometrics & Test Development Workshop
Monday, November 18 | 8:30 am - 4:30 pm PT
Testing, measurement and psychometric principles can strike fear into the heart of many credentialing professionals. And yet, a solid understanding of these concepts is essential to communicate and ensure the value of a credential to the organization, the candidate and the public.
To help credentialing organizations and leaders learn these essential principles and how they align with standards, we are pleased to provide this one-day workshop on the fundamentals of psychometrics and the assessment life cycle. The workshop will provide the opportunity to participate in a practical and interactive learning session with experienced Yardstick Assessment Strategies (YAS) Psychometricians while networking with your peers.
At the end of the workshop, participants will have a new level of understanding, and a new comfort level with test development and psychometric principles that they can apply immediately, in addition to a better understanding of how these apply in the context of the NCCA Standards.
