    Kenneth, welcome to TechExams.

    You will find here a community of people focused on IT certifications and IT careers, and committed to protecting the value of industry certifications.

    To all TE members: Kenneth joined today and posted this ad for assessment authors based on my recommendation to him that he could find some strong people here to assist him. I have the utmost respect for the membership here, and I truly believe that he will find what he seeks. I also want to let all of you know that I am familiar with Kenneth and have done a small bit of work for his company. I have no problem vouching for his reputation and the sincerity of his request.

    Thanks for the clarification eMeS, I was dancing on the fence about this post.

    Kenneth, welcome to the forums and I hope you're able to find some people to assist you with your target areas as SMEs; unfortunately I'm not one of them (my skills lie elsewhere). ;)

    It's been quite a tough journey trying to seek out relevant and highly credible authors.

    We are targeting mainly ICT assessments - so if you have something you might like to contribute based on your skill sets do let me know:)

    Hey man,

    MS is a great guy so for him to vouch for you says something. Can you give me some more information about the scope of what you're asking? Do you have any examples of resources you are currently using that would serve as a rough template for what you expect?

    Thank you,

    Paul B.

    Hi Paul,

    I've no doubt that MS is a really great guy, working with him was a breeze and i really appreciated his contribution to our assessment pool.

    Except for Java, the rest has no framework or outline established, my goal is therefore to seek out Subject Matter Experts(SMEs) that could assist me with creating frameworks and content.

    Currently i'm focusing all resources to establish key assessments for the information security domain - specifically, all assessments are centered around competencies that may be required for a junior level security engineer.

    The core objective of the assessments is to do the following:
    1. replace the role of hiring managers that are needed to ask key technical interview questions during interviews

    2. provide a standardized, objective and quantitative method of assessing candidates

    3. We also try to keep assessment content to be less academic and more functional. Meaning to say - we don't want to just test stuff that's in a standard course outline, we want stuff that's a little "real-world" as well. These could be questions/problem scenarios that differentiate an experienced guy from a rookie.

    4. When creating assessments i often ask authors to slip back on their hiring manager shoes and ask themselves: If i was a hiring manager and i was shown this assessment set that could help me filter out my candidates - are these questions good enough for me? does it tell me what i need to know about this candidate's knowledge competencies? Will I buy it and trust it to do the job?

    Hope this paints a better picture of what we're trying to establish
