Exam Integrity Investigations: An Introduction to the Essentials
It’s time for an investigation…now what?
Attend this free webinar on Wednesday, January 21, Noon ET
In today’s high-speed, electronically connected society, exam integrity incidents occur more frequently and present greater risks to test sponsors and their examinations. When incidents occur that threaten the integrity of your exam, you must have a comprehensive investigation plan in place that your team members understand and are prepared to execute swiftly and thoroughly.
Thorough investigations of exam integrity violations are needed in response to a wide range of possible exam integrity incidents; from individual cheating, to collusion, to item harvesting. It’s important to have personnel trained and ready to respond with effective strategies to (1) detect and mitigate exam integrity vulnerabilities and (2) conduct internal exam integrity investigations when incidents occur.
Join our hosts, Marc Weinstein and Ben Mannes of Caveon Investigation Services as they discuss why a sound investigation plan is necessary, what to consider when an investigation is conducted, and why having the right resources is so important.
This webinar is free, and will only last about an hour.
