ITC-ATP Guidelines for technology based assessments
A Panel Discussion on the International Test Commission (ITC) and Association of Test Publishers (ATP) Guidelines for Technology-based Assessments is scheduled for Saturday 10 July at the ITC (virtual) Conference 2021. The ITC-ATP Guidelines for Technology-based Assessments provide information about the key issues to consider when designing and delivering tests using digital platforms, and guidance to test developers, test administrators, and test users on how to best ensure fair and valid assessment in a digital environment. Their goal is to promote best practices in test development, administration, and scoring to facilitate fair and valid measurement of the psychological and educational characteristics targeted by contemporary assessments.
By April this year, 36 sections of the Guidelines were written, peer-reviewed, and edited. The intended release date will be close to the end of 2021. Our very own Steve Dept researched the literature and drafted the section on “Translation and Adaptation of technology-based assessments”, and was humbled to receive positive feedback and constructive criticism from some of the most accomplished experts in the field of testing.
Panel Participants: Stephen Sireci, ITC (co-moderator), John Weiner, ATP (co-moderator), Maria Elena Oliveri, Dragos Iliescu, April Zenisky
