Utilizing SMEs to their Full Potential
Subject Matter Expert (SMEs) are extremely critical during the assessment process because of their expertise and experiences. However, test administrators often fail to utilize them to their full potential during the assessment process. This session will: 1) identify four different groups of SMEs; 3) discuss which SMEs are ideal during each stage of the assessment process; 3)categorize different types of SMEs test administrators encounter; and 4) provide tips to help overcome the challenges test administrators face with working with SMEs.
PM Workshop 2
2:30 – 4:00 PM
Brooke Parker & Mike Loyd, Ohio State CETE
The Subject Matter Expert Lifecycle
A persistent challenge in developing quality assessment programs is not only the continuity of subject matter expert (SME) involvement throughout development or revision cycles, but also the quality and vigilance of SMEs. This session will reflect on a model for utilizing SMEs to develop statewide standards and assessments for career-technical education programs in Ohio – The Subject Matter Expert Lifecycle. Attendees will be presented with pitfalls that can occur during the SME Lifecycle and associated dangers to assessment quality. Best practices around SME definition, development, and training will be discussed, and balancing best practices within the constraints of less-than-ideal implementation will be explored.
