DETAILS:     The IPMAAC annual conference offers professionals the opportunity to share their latest research, programs and ideas with their peers. Since its founding, IPMAAC's greatest strengths have always been its members' commitment to building a solid theoretical and applied research foundation for their professional activities.

Dr. Klion is a noted psychologist and expert in personality testing and Web-based assessment for pan. As organizations transition from their current, assessment formats (such as paper/pencil and local PC/diskette) to Web-based testing, there are unique challenges that can emerge. The complexity involved in the transitioning process amplifies when scores from the legacy test system are to be used concurrently with those obtained from the newly implemented system. This symposium provides an overview of the conversion of two very different assessment programs and how these issues can be addressed.
