Lessons Learned from Taking a Performance Based Exam to China

Presenter: Clyde Seepersad, General Manager for Training & Certification at The Linux Foundation

Abstract: During 2018, The Linux Foundation (together with our partners at PSI) worked to implement a performance based exam for the China market. This presentation summarizes our experiences and the lessons learned on topics ranging from getting a hosting account behind The Great Firewall to cultural preferences for in-person over remote proctoring.

Test Development Techniques for Security

The ITCC recently released to its membership a white paper titled “Test Development Techniques for Security”. This paper was a combined effort of the Securing Certifications task force.

Synopsis: Wouldn’t it be nice if you never had to worry about your test items getting stolen? Ever wonder if there is a way to cheat-proof your exams? Newer test development techniques and delivery strategies can help you do just that. This white paper discusses several innovative item development and test creation methods that can help your certification program protect the integrity of your exams and give you confidence in the exam scores produced. Each of these techniques are similar, in that they make each candidate’s examination more unique. Which in turn makes it harder for the candidate to use pre-knowledge to affect their test result. They also reduce the impact of any theft of your content. Get to know: agile test development, automatic item generation, Smart Items™, bank-based testing methods and use of surreptitious digital watermarking practices. It’s a bet you’ll be able to use at least one of these strategies to help protect your testing program.
