Scantron’s Chief Assessment Officer, Nikki Eatchel, was the Facilitator and a Speaker at the Association of Test Publishers first webinar in the digital series, “New World of Testing.” The webinar, “New Psychometrics,” was conducted on June 30, 2020.
The aim of this initial webinar is to open dialogue on the ways psychometrics can continue to remain relevant as the landscape undergoes a shift toward new constructs, new data, and new computational models. Other Speakers on this first webinar were:
Alina A. von Davier, PhD, Chief Officer, ACT Next by ACT
Craig Mills, Senior Vice President for Professional Services, National Board of Medical Examiners
André de Champlain, Director, Psychometric and Assessment Services, Medical Council of Canada
“There is strength in numbers—and the more experts in our industry that come together to talk about the critical challenges facing our global community, the more successfully our industry can respond to provide effective, positive solutions,” states Nikki Eatchel. “ATP has always been a great forum for innovative discussions and Scantron is proud to contribute to this panel and to support ATP in its ongoing goal to be the intelligent voice for testing.”
The webinar series will showcase the assessment community’s ingenuity to address unprecedented challenges as well as a myriad of concerns that saddle new, mostly digital solutions. The series also will provide a forum for invited experts to share their knowledge and experience with the worldwide assessment community.
