Brief Session Description: Data-driven instruction is a well-known process. Can this same process be applied to hiring protocols? Well-crafted skills assessments can inform and confirm hiring choices. But the results can also reveal trends about technical abilities to compare internal and external candidate competencies. In efforts to fulfill the need to recruit and retain the highest quality staff, our technology team has partnered with our HR department and developed an online testing protocol that uncovered an unarticulated challenge: our internal candidates were falling behind in technology knowledge and previous pathways for advancement were shutting down. Come learn how to design a solid online skills assessment and then use the results to drive professional development for our often underserved support staff.
