We'll be holding the first question writing session for the BSDP exam on May 15 from 9:30 - 16:00 EDT. For those of you already in Ottawa for BSDCan, we will have a room in the Desmarais Building at 55 Laurier Avenue East (same building as BSDCan). For those of you who aren't in Ottawa, the session will also be available online through the bigbluebutton video conferencing system. In order to access the session online, you will need a flash enabled web browser; a headset and/or webcam are also recommended but not required as bigbluebutton includes a live chat channel in addition to the video/audio stream. I'll post the IP address for the bigbluebutton stream a day or so before the session.
If you are interested in participating, please ping me off-list so I can send you a copy of the NDA and question writer's guide. This will also give us an idea of how many people are participating so we can organize the work flow.
For those of you who have never attended a question writing session before, here is what you can expect:
- it is a full day of work, so expect to be busy. Those who have attended in the past have found it to be a fascinating experience that gives good insight into the process of how a certification exam is put together.
- it is important to be on time for the beginning of the session as the first 30 minutes or so will get participants oriented with the day's outcomes and will further discuss how to write a good question. Due to the differences in time zones, you aren't expected to stay the full scheduled time, but should be on time for the beginning and to dedicate at least a few hours to the session.
- you will want to have a copy of the BSDP exam objectives handy (http://www.bsdcertification.org/downloads/certreq_bsdp_en.pdf). You may find it easier to print out the pages containing the objectives (pages 16-76).
