Resource List Raffle

In conjunction with the 2004 Annual Conference, the CLEAR Publications Subcommittee is holding a raffle for an "Annotated Inventory of Available Resources."  These members-only resource lists include links to online resources and articles on a variety of topics of interest to the regulatory community.  The Subcommittee recommends and reviews the resources for their value and usefulness and updates the lists periodically.  Some current topics include Test Adaptations for Language Differences and Online Resources for Board Members.
**** Two new topics, Maintenance of Certification Among Medical Specialty Boards and Disaster Recovery & Business Continuity Plans, were added in May. ****
If you have a regulatory topic or issue that you'd like more information about, fill out the online entry form.  If your name is drawn, the Publications Subcommittee will develop an Annotated Inventory of Available Resources based on your topic.


Do You Have Questions About Testing?

What questions do board members and others have about testing practices?  Have you been in a tight situation and needed a response with psychometric explanation?  Are you faced with new testing challenges?  CLEAR is ready to help.  You are invited to submit your questions to be discussed at the annual September meeting.  Send your questions and testing concerns to Stephanie Thompson.
