WebXam News

Health Science Field Testing

Post-testing for Health Science, including Medical Terminology, must be completed by the end of April 22, 2022. These tests are in field testing, and they will not be available after April 22, 2022. Scores for these tests will be finalized within 2 weeks after the testing window closes so that scores will be available for graduating students. Please note that these tests are longer than typical WebXam Assessments, so please be sure to provide your students adequate time to complete the tests.

Field Tests

CETE at BPA and DECA State Competitive Events Conferences in Columbus

Members of the Recruitment staff will be hosting a booth and participating at the BPA and DECA State Competitive Events Conferences in Columbus on 3/10 through 3/12. Please stop by and visit our booth to learn about item-writing opportunities in Business & Administrative Services, Marketing and Finance.

Transportation Systems Validation & Standard Setting

If you are interested in learning more about the validation and standard setting process for Transportation Systems, please contact cete-recruiting@osu.edu. We will be hosting 6 days of validation to review existing and newly written items. Be sure to sign up today - SMEs are KEY to CETE!

Construction Technologies and Health Science Old Item Validation

We need to validate the existing items that were reviewed by SMEs for these two career fields as part of the standards alignment process. These workshops will be held in-person at CETE for three days: Construction and Health Science in June (tentatively 6/7-6/9). Please contact cete-recruiting@osu.edu if you are interested in participating in these workshops. Item-writing calendar: https://news.webxam.org/item-writing/calendars/

If you cannot help us write items but would still like to provide your input on the tests for Transportation Systems, please sign up to take a survey that helps us prioritize content standards for each course by contacting Bridget McHugh at mchugh.159@osu.edu. Filling out the survey takes about 10-30 minutes depending on how many courses you would like to provide information on and can be completed in multiple sessions over several days (the survey will save your place).

Professional Development Offerings

CETE has produced a series of professional development offerings focused on the importance of testing, WebXam Quick start guides, and creating quality multiple-choice test items. These online modules are free and can be found here: http://u.osu.edu/ceteassessment/pd/
