Stop by our booth, #308 for a mini birthday cake on Monday morning, as well as a “Commsmopolitan” cocktail on Monday evening at the exhibitors’ reception.
Away from the booth, you will also find us at different events. Sue Orchard is one of the 3 judges for this year’s Hackathon and Cicek Svensson will be taking part in the following presentations on Monday:
- 9:45am – 10:45am – A Cross Divisional Presentation – Lessons Learned – Sharing The Mistakes That Assessment Professionals MakeEntrepreneurs (e.g., Richard Branson) often openly share the mistakes they have made with the public because they fundamentally believe that the mistakes can become practical and problem-based learning opportunities. Unlike other professionals, assessment professionals rarely share their mistakes with the public.The panel will create an environment where the audience feels comfortable sharing their own mistakes, lessons learned, and what they might have done differently with input and suggestions from other attendees.
- 1:30pm – 2:30pm – Featured Speaker Session: Cross Industry Panel: Communicating the Value of TestingThe testing industry impacts nearly every aspect of our lives, from healthcare, structural engineering, and air quality, to education, finances, and insurance, just to name a few. Despite this impact, testing is has received significant negative attention from media and various legislative officials. As a result, test publishers and credential issuers are facing growing needs to better explain the value of quality testing and the rigor which it entails. Join with experts from across various assessment industry associations to discuss the value of testing to our communities and how we can better communicate and positively demonstrate that value.
