    I didn't Know Excel Could Do that! Using Microsoft Excel for Data Management and Data Visualization

    Martha Hennen, SEC

    Chris Bordeaux, OCC Treasury

    Data visualization is increasingly used by large, mid-sized, and even small organizations to get the most out of their data. Visually displaying large amounts of data in a clear and cohesive way can help organizations more quickly identify and make sense of trends and patterns, pinpoint outliers, and both ask and answer complex "what if" questions. At the same time, many organizations, especially those in the public sector, lack specific software resources to serve this function. This workshop will showcase the underutilized data management and visualization capabilities of Microsoft Excel. Workshop exercises will build on participants' existing Excel skills to transform data into powerful and intuitive dashboards.

    Workshop participants will walk away with:

    1. Techniques for importing, updating, and arranging external datasets in Excel;
    2. Knowledge of built-in Excel functions that simplify calculating and transforming data for display purposes;
    3. Techniques for using Excel's pivot tables, pivot charts, and slicers to build intuitive visual displays or dashboards; and,
    4. Tips and tricks for data visualization and practical resources for where and how to get help when you need it.

    Note: participants are encouraged to bring a laptop, to benefit from hands on exercises.

    Refunds of conference registration fees will be made for cancellations prior to June 22, less a $25 processing fee. No refunds will be granted after June 22.

    Situational Judgement Tests: Do they work and how do we develop them?

    Deborah Whetzel, HumRRO

    Shane Pittman, HumRRO

    Click here to view author bios.

    Situational judgment tests (SJTs) assess individual judgment by presenting examinees with problem scenarios and a list of plausible response options. Examinees then evaluate each response option for addressing the problem described in the scenario. Reasons for their continued popularity  are that they (a) address job-related competencies that cannot be easily measured with traditional multiple-choice tests, (b) have useful levels of criterion-related validity, (c) have construct validity as many SJTs assess leadership and interpersonal skills, (d) have incremental validity over cognitive ability measures, (e) have small to moderate group differences, and (f) can be presented in a variety of media formats, including text-based, avatar-based, and video-based.  This workshop will provide (a) a review of the psychometric characteristics of SJTs, and (b) best-practice guidance, based on both empirical evidence and our experience, for developing SJTs. The workshop will include hands-on practice on how to write SJT items based on commonly used competencies.


    Refunds of conference registration fees will be made for cancellations prior to June 22, less a $25 processing fee. No refunds will be granted after June 22.
