April 30, 2015

Course maintenance is scheduled for May 4, 2015. Maintenance may be comprised of changes to questions or answers, changes to content, enhanced audio or graphics, etc.

Both the TNG and KNT courses for the titles listed below will be unavailable from approximately 1:30-4:00pm CST.

How this maintenance will affect your users:

KNT courses
Maintenance will have no affect — user status will be maintained within the course and the LMS.

TNG courses
Users with a Not started course status will not be affected.
If a user’s course status is either Passed or Failed, the percent completion status within the course itself will be reset. Any further course progress WILL NOT be reported to the LMS until the course is reset.

IMPORTANT: EnergyU administrators should educate users that after course maintenance occurs, a TNG will not report a new score unless the course is either reset by the certificate program or by the EnergyU administrator. Users wishing to receive a new score date should verify a status of Not started prior to launching the course.

192 course library test question review

April 30, 2015

MEA is constantly seeking to provide you with the best courseware and evaluations. As part of that process, MEA has a 2015 goal of reviewing all test questions in the 192 course library.

MEA’s Technical Training Committee, utilizing 192 task-specific subject matter experts, will be organizing a review of all test questions. Their goal is to identify and confirm the validity of the test questions relevant to each 192 task. Non-relevant questions will be eliminated. The second part of the process scrutinizes the resultant questions for reliability. Questions will be reviewed and revised as necessary by third party test writing professionals.

If your company would like to participate in this question review please contact Richard Stump (651-289-9600 x126). The process is scheduled for completion by early fall, with the revised courses available by the end of October, 2015.
