During the recent Questionmark European Users Conference in Manchester, Stefanie Moerbeek, Senior Coordinator for Examination Development at EXIN, and Greg Pope, Questionmark’s Analytics and Psychometrics Manager, facilitated a best practice session that gave delegates the opportunity to participate in a peer discussion on Hot Topics in the Assessment Industry.
Stefanie and Greg join me in this podcast to share the outcomes of this session and provide an overview of topics such as beta testing questions, using randomization within examinations and dealing with intellectual property theft of exams.
There’s plenty of excitement in Manchester, England, where the first general session of the Questionmark European Users Conference brought delegates up to date with recent product releases and Questionmark’s Open Assessment Platform. Breakouts sessions this afternoon will be followed by dinner at Old Trafford, home of England’s famed Manchester United Football Club.
Tomorrow’s general session will explore the themes of E-assessment and Interoperability, Standards and Accessibility and another full program of breakout sessions including case studies, technical training, best practices and Product Central discussions where delegates share their insights with Questionmark product managers.
You can catch highlights from the general sessions via our Live Blog and/or follow the conference on Twitter.

Come to London, Manchester and Edinburgh in May
It won’t be long before our UK team sets out on their annual round of Breakfast Briefings in England and Scotland. We started the briefings several years ago and have found they’re a great way to connect with people and show them all the new technologies that are coming on board. For people who’ve never used online quizzes and tests it’s a chance to learn the basics. There will also be tips about blended delivery, the growing use of smartphones and other mobile devices, and new ways to harvest content from subject matter experts.
This year’s breifings are set for Manchester on 12 May, London on 13 May, and Edinburgh on 19 May. We hope you’ll come along for breakfast and a good morning’s conversation. Please register ahead of time so we will know to expect you!
