3rd Edition of “Certification: The ICE Handbook”

including “Innovations in Certification and Assessment”
by Brian Bontempo, Ph.D. and Kirk Becker, Ph.D.

November 22, 2019 - The Institute for Credentialing Excellence (ICE) released the third edition of Certification: The ICE Handbook at the 2019 ICE Exchange in San Diego, CA. The ICE Handbook includes chapters on certification law, governance and management of certification programs, examination development, test administration and scoring, recertification, and the future of professional certification. As with the previous editions, the ICE Handbook is a step-by-step, practical guide to the implementation of effective professional certification examinations. The handbook was written by recognized experts in the field of professional certification examinations and was edited by James Henderson, Ph.D.

Mountain Measurement’s Founder and Principal Consultant, Brian Bontempo, Ph.D. and Kirk Becker, Ph.D., Senior Researcher at Pearson Vue, provided one of the chapters that is new to this edition. The chapter, entitled Innovations in Certification and Assessment, provides information which is likely to be rather new for the target audience, certification professionals. The authors cover the lifecycle of innovation, a process for developing certification innovations, the evolution of innovation for a certification program, and an overview of many current and upcoming innovations in certification.

When asked about this chapter Brian indicated, “I am confident that certification executives and decision makers will find the information in this chapter invaluable when charting a course for innovation. New programs will find the section on the evolution of innovation for certification programs to be helpful while seasoned programs will find it beneficial to review the process of innovation and current areas of innovation.”
