With apologies for cross posting
We are delighted to announce, the 14th annual international conference on e-Assessment and computer supported assessment and qualifications, the e-Assessment Question Conference and Exhibition. The e-Assessment Question is the key Conference and Exhibition examining the practical aspects of e-Assessment and its use from the classroom to the workplace, for both formative and summative assessment
There is a lot happening in the world of e-Assessment,
Ø Open Badges,
Ø remote proctoring/invigilation,
Ø advanced and psychometrically calibrated testing tools,
Ø integration with learning systems,
Ø the implications of digital natives, and digital divides,
Ø cloud based activities,
Ø data mining of assessment data,
Ø adaptive assessments,
Ø volume processing and on demand certification etc.
are all happening now. Exciting yes, but also challenging with new risks and rewards.
The focus of the conference will be the future, where these and other tools are leading, and what are the risks and benefits we will have to manage. Day One, 16th March 2016 will focus on formative e-Assessment and assessment for learning of knowledge, understanding, competency and skills in vocational and academic education. Day Two, 17th March 2016 will focus on innovation and new ideas in summative e-Assessment at the heart of formal high stakes qualifications and certification. Speakers this year include representatives from Awarding Organisations, International Bodies, Professional Associations and Institutions, and service/system providers from across the UK and Europe.
Bookings may be made for either day or both days of the event, with a discount for Charities, Schools, Colleges, Universities and those in the public sector. Delegates can attend for one day or both.
We trust you or one of your colleagues will be able to join us for what will certainly prove to be an invaluable and thought-provoking event.
