Theme: Tech, Trends, and the Future of Credentialing… Join the conversation at the 2019 Thought Leaders Exchange!
This is meant to be an open forum and an exchange of ideas, questions and even concerns of what the future could or should hold for the assessment industry. Please be prepared to actively participate and share your thoughts and experiences!
We will be exploring the following topics during our time together:
Data Strategies for the Future: Today we develop and administer tests for the purpose of drawing inferences from the exam results, which typically inform decisions. Could we make better inferences and therefore better decisions if we augment or even replace test results with other sources of data? Is that possible within the context of legal defensibility, validity, and data privacy concerns?
Emerging Technology: Does machine learning, AI, AR, and VR, simply provide more efficient ways to automate and add fidelity to our current testing processes and models? Or do they offer opportunities to move beyond or replace our current testing processes and models? What industries and innovations outside of the assessment industry will have the greatest impact on the assessment industry over the next decade?
Credentialing Strategies for the Future: How relevant are monolithic credentials? How do we adapt our methods for informing monolithic credentialing decisions to fit micro-credentials and “choose your own adventure” credentialing programs?
Check back soon for additional event details and updates.
