Note: This update is only open to qualified applicants who have successfully completed TWO two-day updates, preferably "Designing Refresher Training" and "The post-crisis Response".

High stakes testing and the impact of transfer of learning has been a controversial issue within the educational arena for many years. How do we fairly and competently assess and evaluate those who participate in residential care training? How can we provide inter-rater reliability with behavioral skill assessment? How can we maximize our training efforts to ensure as much transfer of the training as possible? How can we be certain that staff have learned the skills properly? How can we make certain that fidelity to the TCI model is adhered to?...are just some of the questions that need to be addressed in the conversation.

This one-day program will focus on a variety of issues related to the testing process as outlined in the “Standards for Educational and Psychological Testing” including test construction, evaluation, documentation, and fairness in testing. Additionally, there will be an opportunity for participants to observe and practice the inter-rater reliability process and receive feedback as well as discuss the importance of performance evaluations and the impact for transfer of learning. Fidelity to the TCI certification process will be considered and opportunities for clarification of the TCI certification requirements will be integral to the program.
