I’m fortunate enough to have two return guests today, Dr. Lisa Drozdick and Kristen Getz, to talk about development of digital assessment measures. Lisa and Kristen are heavily involved in Q-interactive and have many years of experience to draw from in this conversation, from both the research and product sides. For a wannabe tech geek like myself, this was a dream come true to be able to pick their brains about the ins and outs of developing digital measures. Here are just a few things that we talk about:

  • The scope and research plan for digital projects
  • User interface and design decisions in digital development
  • Gender neutrality in digital assessment
  • Deciding what data is important to measure when you could almost literally measure everything
