India has a long, proud history of assessment and in such a large, densely populated country, the need for rigorous assessment processes is paramount.

Delegates will have the opportunity to discuss the widespread concerns regarding the quality of some assessments, and understand the research findings, including the challenges affecting the 100 surveyed test owners, and discuss potential solutions that can be applied to your test programs.

The event comprises of the unveiling of the report by Divyalok Chetan Sharma, Director (Client Development), Pearson VUE followed by a workshop by Julie Miles (Ph.D), Vice President, Global Measurement and Research, Pearson VUE focusing on the following topics:

  • How to create and maintain a good assessment
