I spent some time talking the other day with Bon Crowder, a global instructional consultant for a large oilfield services company. She explained how her organization has expanded its use of online assessments to include not only high-stakes exams and certifications but also formative assessments such as quizzes. With participants all over the world — and having recently launched an assessment to 40,000 people — Bon’s organization values the ability to gather and analyze data that will help improve instructional programs.
We touched on many subjects, including the involvement of subject matter experts (SMEs) in using Questionmark Live to create assessment content, options for monitoring some higher-stakes assessments taken outside of testing centers, and a technique Bon has devised for easily creating multiple math-related questions from a single question stem.
