Full Day Workshop presented by:

James Austin, Ph.D., Director of Assessment Services for CETE, The Ohio State University

Robert Mahlman, Director of CETE, The Ohio State University

Test design-development-delivery comprises a critical part of risk management for human resources professionals, and nowhere is this more important than in the public sector.  This workshop provides a look at key principles and practices entailed in a 10-step test construction model, spanning selected, constructed and performance responses, starting with context (laws, regulations, courts) and moving through 1) purpose, 2) content domains, 3) test specifications-blueprints, 4) items, 5) establishing defensible cutoffs, 6) test forms, 7) evidence through validation activities, 8) scoring-reporting, 9) maintenance, and 10) evaluating tests:  own and others (off-shelf).  The 2014 Standards for educational and psychological testing will be covered (though given their newness, not in depth).  Structured exercises and handouts will elaborate the material and user-supplied cases are welcome.
