This year, IPAC's annual conference is here in my home of Sacramento from July 31 - August 3. I'll be there Monday afternoon for a session titled "Fits and Starts: The Evolution of Testing for the State of California (Special Invited Session)", where I'll be interviewing my good friend, Adria Jenkins-Jones. Here's the description:
In this lively discussion, the presenters will discuss the
current state of employment testing for the state of
California, including significant recent and upcoming
changes to our examination software. Using an interview
format, the presenters will discuss the massive changes
envisioned for statewide testing, and how the California
Department of Human Resources is attempting to
collaborate with stakeholders to change the traditional
paradigm, and significantly improve automation, while
maintaining the commitment to merit. The presenters
will engage in open dialogue and there will be time for
audience members to ask questions about current and
future directions of testing for the state.
