Working Remotely with Subject Matter Experts (SMEs)

Adopting a virtual approach to exam development proved necessary in 2020 but it can also reduce costs by eliminating travel expenses and potentially expanding the pool of subject matter experts (SMEs) who appreciate the flexibility of shorter meeting times. SeaCrest gathered feedback from certification programs and test development specialists to assemble practical advice to facilitate virtual exam development activities. Understanding the key challenges and planning carefully are the keys to success.
