Your ISD staff can be developed to conduct the analysis, design, and development of Performance Tests, within the context of Instructional Development – Job Aids and Training, or simply to produce Performance Tests.
In 1987 our client initially intended to develop and conduct the Performance Testing, and then they conduct a Curriculum Architecture Design effort and develop the priority Instruction needed. But what they discovered, and we predicted, is that they would not need to do a CAD effort.
Once the Performance Tests and processes were made public, the target audiences would self-prepare and develop themselves to be able to pass these tests. Having test performance tied to their wallets probably helped. At least, that’s what we predicted at the time.
Performance Testing – It’s ALL – about Performance. And demonstrated competence.
