Who will tackle questions such as:

'Where is digital technology taking the challenge to deliver efficient, robust and reliable assessment of skills, knowledge and understanding?'
'How can we raise standards and improve achievement, meeting regulatory goals and learner expectations'
'Who is leading the way in delivering 21st Century digital assessment?'
'How will Institutions and Organisations manage the Assessment process so that it is a central part of learning, training and skills development'
'What can e-Assessment tell us about students and employees, how do we mine this data to get closer to the cohort, understand their learning and development needs'
'How does the world of digital natives, social media, big data, innovative technology affect computer based testing and assessment?'

Computer based assessment has grown significantly since the early days of automatic test publishing and certification. We have seen developments like paperless examination projects, e-proctoring, open badges, social media, BYOD, the growth of e-portfolios, the proliferation of question types, the rise of government initiatives and policies following FELTAG and Curriculum for Excellence, including the focus on technology in Apprenticeships, the expectations of digital natives resulting from rapid growth in technology and its use.

Both days will look at the broad spectrum of innovative e-assessment from assessment for learning and formative assessment in the classroom and the workplace, to digital delivery of high stakes qualifications, to the use of technology to support and enhance assessment, qualifications and certification - developing robust, reliable and cost-effective solutions to support learners, teachers and institutions.

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. We are delighted to be working with the e-Assessment Association and their gala dinner to be held on the evening of the 18th April 2018 at which the second e-Assessment Awards will be presented. Delegates to the conference can optionally book their place at the dinner when booking for the conference.

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.
