[Surpass Community Podcast] Transitioning from Physical to Virtual Item Writing Workshops

By 12 May 2020 Podcast

In this timely podcast, Tim Burnett is joined by Norah Duffy, Programme Director and Credentialing Specialist at the California Water Environment Association, Amanda Dainis, CEO and Lead Psychometrician at Dainis and Company, and Chris Morrison, VP Product Development from the Surpass team. The group discuss transitioning from physical meetings to collaborative remote item writing workshops, something that many organisations have had to implement or are considering implementing in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic, as working virtually becomes the ‘new normal’.

The panel first discuss the pivotal role of the SME (Subject Matter Expert) in the test development process, before looking at key considerations and recommendations when delivering a virtual workshop, such as planning ahead, communication with your SMEs, and the importance of a good platform to make the process as simple as possible for everybody involved.

The team then look at how Surpass could support your virtual item writing process with features such as workflow controls and task management functionality.
