About This Webinar

Sarah Pauly Hughes
Test Development Professional, Alpine Testing Solutions 

As you assemble your team of item writers, you will need to determine the secure process by which they will write, review, edit, and select test questions. Some credentialing programs host in-person item writing workshops while others choose to meet virtually. During this webinar, participants will consider the pros and cons of each setting, and they will identify programmatic considerations (goals, budget, resources, etc.) that should factor in to the decision to develop test items in-person or in the virtual environment.

  • to identify the advantages and disadvantages of using online tools during item writing workshops
  • to assess program needs to determine if a virtual or an in-person item writing workshop is the the most appropriate
