Stackable Credentials

Thursday, Jan 16, 2020 – 12pm-1pm EST

In this session, we will define a stackable credential, uses, and value. There are a few models, often linear, where the credential expands throughout a career and competency levels (entry level, mid-career, and seasoned). Therefore, as the credentials stack above one another they are expected to have more cognitively demanding and difficult assessment content. The presenters will provide examples from the industry and their own organizations. Attendees will be able to apply the content of the presentation to their own credentialing organization.


Job Analysis for the Workforce: A Competency Model

Thursday, Mar 12, 2020 – 12pm-1pm EST

In this session, we will introduce the various job analysis (practice analysis, role delineation studies, body of knowledge studies) used in certification and licensure often to establish validity for an assessment. While these type of job analyses are required and essential to establish validity, it has many shortcomings which have been voiced by AERE clients and others in the certification and licensure industry. In an effort to explore this further, AERE will introduce other methods used by I/O psychologists, HR professionals, and training professionals. In many cases, these methods move beyond the traditional methods used to identify important, critical, and frequent KSAs specific to measure a certification or licensed professional. Instead, these job analysis methods build a competency model along the career continuum (e.g., entry level, mid-level, expert level). With these models, an organization can have many more uses which will inform the workforce the necessary competencies to assess across their lifelong career.
