Soft launch approach

Soft Launch Approach

  • The release of a product or service to a limited audience

  • A method for gathering data on a product or service before making it generally available to a broader audience

  • An approach that allows CASAS to release new NEDP system incrementally, initially to a limited number of sites, one competency area at a time

    • Clients complete new items in lieu of the old items from the same or similar competency area

    • Successfully demonstrated assessment items are valid for program completion

Assessment development

Assessment Development

  • Each NEDP assessment item must be analyzed for reliability and validity

  • Ongoing process begins with soft launch

    • Soft launch “n” of 100 per item

    • Full validation “n” of 300 per item

  • Items require tight relationship of item prompt, resources, and evaluation criteria

  • Revisions are based on data and feedback

    • Candidate demographics and Diagnostic results

    • Item responses, assessor evaluation, number of attempts

    • Time to complete (many items start big and are pared down)


The importance of feedback

The Importance of Feedback!

  • CASAS reviews all feedback from clients and assessors

  • Online feedback tabs and written reflection

  • Assessor email

  • Feedback topics

    • Evaluation criteria, guidelines

    • Resources (former Appendix)

    • Item clarity

  • Please be specific!

  • Web-based system facilitates timely revisions
