    Episode 28: Research on Recidivism

    Episode 28: Research on Recidivism

    Jimi Bush and Sarah Chenvert with the Washington Medical Commission discuss a recent recidivism study undertaken to look for behavior patterns among licensees who have undergone more than one instance of discipline within a 10-year time frame. The study aimed to determine if the Medical Commission's corrective actions had effectively resulted in physicians and physician assistants changing their practices and modifying their behavior. They share some findings of the study and some ways that the Commission will use the data to revamp their compliance program to work more closely with licensees to educate them and address common compliance issues before they become a problem.

    Episode 27: What Makes a Difference for Candidates Taking Computer-based Tests?

    Episode 27: What Makes a Difference for Candidates Taking Computer-based Tests?

    Paula Lehane, a Ph.D. candidate at Dublin City University in Ireland with the Centre for Assessment Research, Policy and Practice in Education, and author of a recent CLEAR Exam Review article, discusses some of the issues that regulatory organizations need to consider for candidates taking computer based tests. She discusses candidates' expectation of flexibility related to device diversity and modifying user interfaces. She provides different examples of form factor and how it can interfere with test-taker performance and how organizations can design tests to ensure that test-taker performance is not influenced by a device’s particular features. She stresses the need for more research based in the assessment industry and making that research public and shareable.

    Episode 26: Alliance for Responsible Professional Licensing

    Episode 26: Alliance for Responsible Professional Licensing

    Skip Braziel, Vice President – State Regulation and Legislation with the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants and David Cox, CEO of the National Council of Examiners for Engineering and Surveying introduce listeners to the newly-formed Alliance for Responsible Professional Licensing.  ARPL is a group of organizations that represent highly-technical professions and the boards that regulate those professions. ARPL hopes to educate policy-makers and the public on concerns related to occupational licensing reform efforts. "It's about our duty to protect the public, and where we see that threatened is where ARPL will become involved." Concerns that Skip and David mention include instances where licensing reform is applied too broadly to all professions, legislation that would allow anyone to perform services as long as the consumer gives consent, and legislation that removes resources from boards.

    Episode 25: What It Means to Be a Good Regulator

    Episode 25: What It Means to Be a Good Regulator

    Deanna Williams, President of Dundee Consulting and long-time CLEAR member, tackles the question, What does it mean to be a good regulator? She talks about being trustworthy and earning public confidence, putting public interest above all others, being genuine and authentic in explaining how our actions best serve and protect the public, and being adaptable on the front-end of change. She discusses how regulators should have frameworks for consistent decision-making, validated evaluative processes, and a culture where questions are seen as opportunities rather than challenges. Good regulators should ask the question, Can we demonstrate that there's value in what we do? She urges regulators to move beyond being just good enough to asking, how can we be better?
