Kryterion Guide to ATP 2020
The ATP 2020 Global Conference starts September 14!
Don't miss this opportunity to engage with the test developers, publishers, sponsors and practitioners active in today's global assessment community.
Attendance at ATP 2020 is expected to be about 1,600 professionals, very close to the number at previous in-person conferences.
Surprising that the numbers would be similar but indicative of the unprecedented issues impacting the industry...and desperately in need of discussion.
The 180 or so breakout, keynote and general sessions, spread out over five days (September 14-18), are guaranteed to be informative and highly relevant to testing in a COVID environment.
For the first time ever, most sessions will be prerecorded and then available on-demand throughout the conference to accommodate the schedules of attendees hailing from 18 time zones around the world.
Kudos to ATP for wrangling all of the technology necessary to create this truly global virtual conference.

And on the topic of Education...you're cordially invited and heartily encouraged to attend a session by Leslie Thomas, Ph.D., Kryterion's Chief Psychometric Officer.
Leslie is a gifted and regular speaker at ATP and other testing-industry conferences. She's eminently qualified to present a case study of an event that she herself conducted.
It involved a large, multinational European software company in which the stakeholders from six newly acquired business units—each with its own certification or certificate program—collaborated in a program-design process to create a common language and framework for defining their credentialing programd going forward.
The title is Getting to Yes: Tools and Processes for Engaging and Educating Program Sponsors.
The prerecorded session airs Wednesday, Sept. 16 from 1:30 p.m. to 2:10 p.m. EDT (10:30 a.m . to 11:10 a.m. PDT).
Other Great Stuff
The Kryterion Sponsor page also provides four free downloads of great content including two white papers, one on marketing your certification program and the other on smart test development from our amazing Kryterion Psychometrics Team. Both white papers have been downloaded hundreds of times.
You can also watch two videos, one on the Four Immutable Laws of Certification Success, which Leslie presented at ATP 2019.
The other is entitled Badges 101 by Kryterion and its strategic partner, Accredible. It's the perfect introduction to the benefits and power of digital badging and certificates.
Last but not least, ATP is sponsoring a scavenger hunt with prizes for, well...scavengers. Our hunt will be so easy (and cool...this is Kryterion, after all) because you probably watched our sponsor-page video like 20 to 30 times, yes?
Success Alert! The answer to our scavenger question is in the video! And you could be a winner!
Enjoy ATP 2020!
