European Conference Close Up: What sessions interest you most?

Chloe MendoncaPosted by Chloe Mendonca

With so many great sessions planned for the Questionmark 2013 European Users Conference in Barcelona November 10 – 12, now is the perfect time to check out the conference agenda and sign up.

The program is set to cover a wide array of topics and I thought I’d summarise one from each of the conference tracks.

Features & Functions: Customising the Participant InterfaceEUCOnf1

Knowing how to add your logo to participant login screens and assessments and customising the styles and behaviours used in assessment templates are just some of the  exciting things you get to learn in this session. For many, ensuring that the participant interface conforms to organisational style guidelines is very important. So if you want to learn about techniques and best practices for customising the interface templates, I’d definitely recommend this session!

Case Study: Using a Blended Test Delivery Model to Drive Strategic Success for SAP Certification

“Author once, deliver anywhere.” This is a major strategic initiative of SAP. And in a genuinely global company, certification needs to be done for people in a variety of geographies and languages. In this session you’ll hear about experiences of delivering the same exams through various delivery channels globally.euconf2

Best Practice: Assessment Feedback – What Can We Learn From Psychology Research?

Retaining knowledge and applying what you learn is something that applies to every individual no matter the industry. We all forget a surprising amount of what we learn, but quizzes and tests can force you into practicing retrieving, making it more likely for things to stick in your mind. John Kleeman, Questionmark’s founder and chairman, will lead this fascinating best practice session providing actionable ideas you can apply to your Questionmark assessments to improve retention.

Bonus Sessions & Demos: Tips for Delivering Your Assessments to Mobile Deviceseuconf3

With an ever-growing mobile world, we’re seeing more and more people using mobile devices for assessment, and exploring the potential of tablets for “mobile test centres”. This means the ability to reach millions of people anytime, anywhere. It is changing the way we test by making it possible to gather information and get results on the spot. This presentation will showcase Inlea’s recent use of mobile assessments and the benefits it has brought to their organisation, as well as providing useful pointers on designing tests for small screens.

I look forward to meeting you next month in Barcelona.
