CPE Provider Item Writer Training

This item is expired.

As a provider of continuing professional education, the Commission on Dietetic Registration’s (CDR) invites you and/or your colleagues to participate in an item writing training webinar with subsequent item writing exercises. CDR’s continuing professional education approval requirements for self-study programs stipulate that assessment item writers document formal item writing training. In response to numerous requests for sources of this required item writing training, CDR is providing a training course opportunity via a webinar conducted by the psychometric staff at PSI Services, CDR’s test vendor.

Date: Wednesday, May 25, 2022
Time: 12:00 pm – 1:30 pm Central Time
Virtual: WebEx – Link will be sent once registration is confirmed

To receive a Certificate of Completion, all participants must complete the following:

  • Register for the course
  • Pay $100 registration fee per individual, no later than Wednesday, April 27, 2022, 11:59 pm CST.
  • Participate in the live webinar
  • Submit three (3) items/questions for review and approval by PSI psychometric staff by Sunday July 3, 2022.
PSI will notify CDR of the participants who have successfully completed the item writing assignment. CDR will then issue a Certificate of Completion to all participants who successfully completed the course by Friday, August 12, 2022. For participants who fail to demonstrate acquisition of item writing skills after PSI’s final review, will not be issued a Certificate of Completion.

Please note that this training has a maximum capacity of 200 participants. Registration will close once 200 participants register which could occur prior to Wednesday, April 27, 2022. Also note that successful completion of this training will qualify participants for CPE item development and not for examination items (entry-level or specialist).
