NCTRC Seeking Item Writers

NCTRC Seeking Item Writers

The item writing process requires the involvement of knowledgeable Certified Therapeutic Recreation Specialists who represent the diversity of service settings and populations served by the CTRS. NCTRC is seeking individuals who are willing to share their knowledge by writing items representing the entry-level knowledge needed by recreational therapists for competent practice. Prior experience/expertise with writing exam questions is not needed as training will be provided to all individuals who are selected to participate in this process. Individuals who are selected for involvement in the item writing process will be able to earn up to 10 hours of continuing education credit (1 hour for each approved item) for their work. The selection criteria for the 2019 Item Writing Committee are as follows:

·         Minimum of (3) three years employment providing RT/TR Services

·         Possess a valid email address and access to email

·         Actively certified as a Certified Therapeutic Recreation Specialist (CTRS)

If you are interested in participating in the item writing process, please fill out the Item Writing Application and email to nmolloy@nctrc.org. Applications should be submitted to NCTRC no later than February 22, 2019. 

Item writers will be notified via email if they have been selected for inclusion in this project.
A mandatory Item writing training will take place via conference call on March 1, 2019 from 12pm–2pm EST, with the item writing to be completed and submitted no later than April 5, 2019. Each of the selected item writers will be required to submit a minimum of 10 items related to assigned exam content areas.
If you have any questions, please feel free to contact Noelle Molloy at nmolloy@nctrc.org.
