Twenty five years ago I founded Pedagogue Solutions, the first on-line assessment company. Pedagogue grew into one of the most successful enterprise assessment management companies and in May 2011 I sold the company to a major talent management company.
I have a doctorate in educational psychology and have long been interested in what we know about how adults learn and how to measure that learning meaningfully.
If you work in the profession of corporate training then this blog is for you. It focuses on the science of learning and the science of assessment and why they are complementary. It highlights the latest findings in the science of learning and how we can use this knowledge to enhance our training programs. And, it covers the processes needed to create fair, valid and reliable assessments and how to interpret the results of these measurements to both certify our employees and improve our training practices.
