In this age of nearly mandatory remote assessment, I’m fortunate to have two amazing individuals from PAR Inc. here to talk through their perspectives on remote administration. We touch on their platform, PARiConnect, as well the main considerations for remote administration, concerns with remote administration, and cultural factors in remote administration. We also spend some time discussing technology issues and the ways that PAR continues to support practitioners through the COVID-19 crisis.

  1. Thank you, I was pleasantly surprised to be introduced to new considerations, especially during the pandemic. I think we should prepare now for what might occur in the future, i.e., another shutdown in Fall. How do I receive CEU’s for this podcast? I didn’t see a quiz or link for the 1 hour CE

  2. Hi – Just finished listening to this podcast and glad I did as I have just embarked on doing remote testing. I was thrilled to hear about the emanuals as I have been hesitant about returning to my office to get some that I need. Lots of great information to consider when writing up my first evaluation report during the pandemic using remote testing. Question – I saw that there are CEU’s available for listening to your podcasts – how does one go about getting them?
