I just got back from another Adaptive Testing workshop, this one at the Universita G. d’Annunzio, Chieti, Italy. Many thanks to Aristide Saggino and Roberta Romanelli for doing such a great job organizing this workshop! It was truly an international affair, with participants from the US, Canada, UK, Belgium, Portugal, Switzerland, Italy, Malta, Croatia, Turkey, Saudi Arabia, Iran, China, Brunei, and Korea. Plus, besides getting to experience the Abruzzo region, many of us were lucky enough to spend a day or two visiting Rome.
Several participants inquired about future workshops, and the possibility of organizing one for their home country. ASC currently has a future adaptive testing workshop tentatively planned in two locations: Tokyo (Sept 4-5, 2010) and Brasilia (June 2011).
Iteman 4 is nearing release. We are currently finishing the manual and the installation package for the program. Once those are finished, it will be placed on the website. Check back for news. This will be a massive upgrade, providing output in Microsoft Word reports and Excel spreadsheets rather than 1980s-style ASCII text.
