NEW PORT RICHEY, Fla. – Feb. 18, 2020 – Learn on Demand Systems, a global leader in hands-on learning, is pleased to announce that its CEO, Corey Hynes, is speaking at the Association of Test Publishers’ 21st annual Innovations in Testing Conference.

The conference, held March 29-April 1, 2020, in San Diego, brings together industry professionals to connect and share knowledge that promotes and advances the integrity of assessment services and products.

With 25 years in the IT education and certification industry under his belt, Hynes is a pioneer in designing solutions for hands-on learning, performance-based testing, and global technical training delivery.

“To address the ever-present skill gaps in the technology industry, IT organizations are re-examining the traditional lecture/lab/test approach and adopting new instructional design models like performance-based testing,” Hynes says. Performance-based testing replaces traditional tests with real-word tasks performed in live environments.

“This drive toward performance-based testing is changing how technology companies build and deliver learning and skills validation solutions,” Hynes explains.

In his session entitled “How Performance-based Testing is Changing IT Skills Assessments and Learning,” he will share with conference attendees:

  • Why the technology industry is moving toward performance-based certification tests.
  • New techniques for building goal-centric learning that provides skills validation.
  • How to overcome the key challenges of adopting this type of solution.

Hynes adds, “I will also share the latest trends in skills assessments and learning for software companies and how the trends parallel those in performance-based testing.”
