We are having a great time at the Questionmark 2009 Users Conference in Memphis–and as always a highlight is meeting our customers and learning from them.

Yesterday I heard a case study about an innovative certification program for a global tech service workforce, in which the expertise of the workers themselves played an important role in the creation of test questions. I also learned how Datakortet susidiary Norsk Test, in Norway, created adaptive tests (some using simulations and sound) to gauge individuals’ levels of digital literacy. Another case study showed how to to import video and audio files to enhance Questionmark Perception questions.

Last night’s Memphis dine-around had us fanning out all over the city to enjoy the local tastes and sounds.  Now it’s back to work! First item on the agenda: hearing our keynote speakers, Sharon Shrock and Bill Coscarelli, teach us a thing or two about Criterion-Referenced Measurement.

We’ll be checking in with more conference details here on the blog, but you can follow us on Twitter too!
