Crowd-sourced Certifications

I've just been mucking around with a new Internet service called Smarterer. That's not a typo, it really is Smarter-er. I guess, in a nutshell, it's an online quiz creator which is meant to help you quantify and showcase your skills. The twist in this implementation is that the quizzes are crowd-sourced. Anyone can write questions for the quiz and thus over time, the group interested in the topic defines the content and the grading of the quiz.

There's a whole pile of things going on under the hood that I haven't gotten into but it does look interesting.

The fruit of my tinkering was that I kicked off an Aviation Safety Management System quiz. It has 20 questions to begin with and is based on ICAO's Safety Management Manual. There's nothing too obscure in the questions but I would love to see the test grow - the only downside is that I can't take the test!

Anyway, check it out at http://smarterer.com/test/aviation-safety-management-systems and let me know what you think.
