YM’s test engine powers leading professional education programs with assessments, quizzes and simulated high-stakes exam features, enriching learners’ experiences on their preferred devices
ST. PETERSBURG, Fla.—YourMembership (YM), a leading cloud-based software provider for associations and member-based organizations worldwide, today announced that the company won a Brandon Hall Group (BHG) “Gold Award for Excellence” in the category of “Best Advance in Technology for the Testing or Learning Evaluation.” YM’s win for its Test Engine self-assessment module, which gives learners the ability to quiz themselves and prepare for high-stakes exams, was announced during December 2016.
YM’s learning management system and included test engine runs leading professional education programs with assessment, quizzing and simulated high-stakes exam features. Those features, largely contributing to YM’s win, were configured specifically to create a new way for self-assessment to be delivered, facilitating both a practice mode for drills and a simulation mode that models a board exam or other high-stakes exams. In addition, simple, yet powerful wizards drive the participant’s experience on their preferred device, where learners can concentrate on topics and subjects of need and importance to their learning and advancing professional development. As part of this, learners benefit from using a dashboard with valuable analytics and performance data to help them prepare for licensing exams and sharpen skills.
“Brandon Hall is the gold standard in our industry for excellence and innovation, and bringing home the top prize for learning evaluation is a great indicator that we are leading the charge toward a higher expectation in self-learning,” said JP Guilbault, president and CEO of YourMembership. “As self-assessment continues to increase in importance across industries, our solution provides a comprehensive toolset for organizations to deliver the required components of professional maintenance for certification and related professional education programs. This is especially true in healthcare, where licensure maintenance requirements will compel participants to keep their skills to date and prepare for board exams.”
“We congratulate our Technology Award winners and thank them for leading the way in designing and utilizing technologies that empower organizations to enhance—and in some cases transform—their organizations,” said Rachel Cooke, COO of Brandon Hall Group and head of the awards program. “The technology user experience plays an increasingly large role in shaping the employee experience, and YourMembership is creating leading practices that deserve validation and recognition, especially based on the rigorous judging process.”
The entries were evaluated by an international panel of independent industry experts, as well as BHG senior analysts and executive leaders. The judging was based on the following criteria: design of the solution, functionality, usability, innovation and overall measurable benefits.
