Abstract: How do you localize assessment items so they will reliably measure knowledge, skills and abilities across multiple languages and cultures? This session by Questionmark Executive Director and Founder, John Kleeman, and cApStAn CEO and Founder, Steve Dept helps you understand good practice in translating and adapting tests and exams.
