I posted recently about an upcoming three-day learning event in Auckland, New Zealand, focusing on assessment best practices. Now I’d like to update you on the great turnout, exciting customers, and the full house that participated in the workshop!
The Online Assessments Symposium organized by Business Toolbox was packed with learning opportunities: the first two days were devoted to instruction on best practices in creating assessments, and the third brought together industry experts to share advice about moving assessments online.
It was motivating to see academic and corporate Questionmark users sharing their experiences in successfully implementing assessments and enjoying some impressive case study presentations. I took these photos with my BlackBerry to give you a sense of the group that gathered.
We will continue to perform workshops like this one around the world so stay tuned for our next location.

I am looking forward to an exciting three-day learning event in Auckland, New Zealand, an Online Assessments Symposium organized by Business Toolbox. The first two days will be devoted to instruction on best practices in creating assessments, and the third will bring together industry experts to share advice about moving assessments online.
Participants take a break from learning at the Online Assessments Symposium in Colombia last month
Last month I presented a similar program in Colombia, and the response was tremendous. A good number or people from both New Zealand and Australia have already registered for the Auckland symposium, and we still have room for a few more. You may opt to register for one or both workshops, but registration will end soon so I encourage you to act now if you would like to join us. Not only is this a great learning opportunity: it also will give you the chance to network with other learning and assessment professionals in the region.
Here are some of the activities we have planned:
August 10 and 11 (Monday and Tuesday) will feature an intensive 2-day workshop: Creating Assessments that Get Results. This course is designed to instruct and engage you in applying best practices for online assessment design, development and delivery.
On August 12 (Wednesday) we will hold a seminar on Putting Your Assessments Online. The seminar will feature an excellent line-up of industry experts and practitioners who will talk about assessment best practice and their own experiences with moving from paper-based to online assessments.
This is a great opportunity for you to see examples of what other organizations are doing, and network with your industry peers. I hope to see many of you at the symposium!
