Test takers want real-world experiences, relevant content, and authenticity in assessment, utilizing technology that they encounter in their everyday lives. As a test sponsor, you want to engage your examinees and offer more relevant, authentic testing experiences but face a complex and challenging path to implementation.

During this presentation, we will discuss the role of performance-based testing, utilization of games and gamification, and incorporation of longitudinal models in supporting successful assessment outcomes and promoting long-term examinee engagement. We will draw upon real-world examples of how exam sponsors have successfully integrated these innovative technologies into their testing programs and explore when these technologies may (and may not be) appropriate for a testing program.

We will also provide an overview of some challenges you will face along the way and explore how the assessment community can work together to better support the inclusion of innovative technologies in assessment.
