Assessment Seminar - Fundamentals in Assessment Accommodation: Level 1

Fundamentals in Assessment Accommodation: Level 1

The Personnel Psychology Centre (PPC) has developed a half day introductory workshop on assessment accommodation. Delivered by PPC test accommodation experts, this Level 1 workshop offers HR advisors and hiring managers the opportunity to enhance their knowledge on:

  • collection and use medical documentation,
  • defensible assessment accommodation,
  • potential risks.

The workshop will provide an overview of the most recent developments in assessment accommodations and help to demystify the assessment of persons with disabilities for appointment processes. Assessment theory will be complemented by sample cases and exercises designed to answer practical questions such as:

  • What information is most relevant in a medical or psychological report?
  • What technological assessment options are available?
  • Should extra time be given to a test-taker and, if so, how much?
  • When should one seek expert advice?

New dates will be published soon.
