Pre-Conference Workshop: Interpreting Item and Test Analyses
Posted by Joan Phaup
We at Questionmark wish you a happy and prosperous New Year. We are delighted to be starting 2011 with this announcement about a new workshop on Interpreting Item and Test Analyses to be held prior to the Questionmark 2011 Users Conference.
Do you wish you had a better understanding of item test analyses — and how to interpret them within an organizational context? Ever wondered how you could make more effective use of information about a test’s mean, standard deviation, and Cronbach’s Alpha reliability? Interpreting this kind of psychometric information takes effort but is of tremendous value in determining whether an assessment is performing as it should.
Greg Pope, our analytics and psychometrics manager who is well known to readers of this blog, will conduct a workshop on this subject the morning of Tuesday, March 15th, in Los Angeles.
After learning the basics of classical test theory, workshop participants will get some hands-on practice in analyzing exemplar assessments and test questions using Questionmark reporting tools. Those that want to will be able to bring their own item and test analysis reports to discuss during the session.
If you would like to be able to interpret item and test analyses in a way that will help you provide better, more relevant assessments for your organization, this workshop is for you!
Interpreting Item and Test Analyses: Understanding the organizational context of test results is the first of two optional workshops we are offering prior to the conference, to be held at the Omni Los Angeles Hotel March 15th – 18th.
I’ll share details about the afternoon workshop, Using Web Services to Integrate with Questionmark Perception, in another post. You can sign up for both of these pre-conference workshops when you register for the conference (something I heartily recommend you do by January 21st, our last day for $100 savings!)
