    Avoid Assessment Pitfalls

    How do you know if your assessments are effective? Are you testing content knowledge? Or do your assessments measure their deduction skills? In this session, you will explore common test-writing pitfalls and discover how smart test-takers excel without learning the content.

    This session will help you recognize high-quality, content-driven assessments and provide an opportunity to experience poorly written test items from the point of view of the test-taker. Learn multiple-choice question-writing "rules," such as including plausible distractors; recognize common test-item pitfalls, like convergence; and understand how smart test-takers use grammatical cues and distractor length to make educated guesses. Combine all of these best practices and you will take your assessments to the next level! Come on down, you're the next contestant on Multiple-Choice Mayhem!

    Learning Objectives:

    • Learn Multiple Choice Writing "Rules"
    • Understand grammatical cues and distractor length
    • Recognize common test-item pitfalls

    Learning Metrics and Measurement

    As learning & development professionals, how do we move from being order-takers to being valued, strategic business partners within our organizations? It starts with aligning our work with the organization's overall goals and being able to discern when training is or is not the best way to meet a particular need. In this session, you'll learn how to use some practical tools to analyze your organization's needs, take employees’ performance to the next level, and ensure that your L&D work has maximum impact where it matters.


    • Use performance improvement models to analyze organizational needs.
    • Given a specific need, identify the most appropriate training or non-training solutions.
    • Use the ""walk backwards"" technique to ensure your L&D work has maximum impact.
