Let's Talk Assessment Innovation and Artificial Intelligence 
Robert Gibby (IBM), Faisal Ahmed(Knockri), Matthew Neale (Revelian)

Technology advances, including artificial intelligence and gaming, are creating new possibilities for more engaging, efficient and predictive assessments. This workshop will focus on innovations for screening, cognitive ability and soft skill assessments as well as applications for interviews. The workshop will go beyond the demos and user experiences to unpack the science and analytics underlying these next generation assessments to help attendees make informed decisions.


This workshop is offered once from 8:30 a.m. to Noon and again from 1:30 p.m. to 5:00 p.m.

What Do We Know, Think We Know, and Know We Don't Know?:

Insights from the Latest Multidisciplinary Research on Assessment 
Ann Marie Ryan(Michigan State University), Anthony Boyce(Amazon)

This workshop will highlight research from multiple disciplines relevant to the assessment space. The workshop will provide a brief update on recent research for "Old School Assessment" tools and approaches, as well as dive into the latest research on top assessments trends, such as OnDemand Video Interviews, Multimedia Simulations, Modularization, Gamification, Mobile, etc., and discus the impact of research in other disciplines. Besides summarizing what is new, the workshop will identify key gaps in our knowledge and discuss how multidisciplinary research can help broaden our thinking about the future of selection.

This workshop is offered once from 8:30 a.m. to Noon and again from 1:30 p.m. to 5:00 p.m.

Validation Meets Innovation:

Doing Right Selection in the 2020's 
Nancy Tippins (The Nancy T. Tippins Group), Fred Oswald (Rice University), Mort McPhail 

This workshop will explore issues related to job analysis, test development, criterion development, and validation as they apply to new assessment tools (e.g., selection procedures based on artificial intelligence, facial recognition, performance in games) that are emerging in our field.  The content of this workshop is designed to refresh practitioners’ skills, expand their knowledge base, and highlight areas in which best practices have not yet been defined and will be grounded in existing legal and professional guidelines.  

This workshop is offered once from 8:30 a.m. to Noon and again from 1:30 p.m. to 5:00 p.m.
