America Square Conference Centre, City of London - Weds. 10th and Thurs. 11th April 2019. 

Are you involved in the development, selection or deployment of e-Assessment, the use of digital technologies to assess and certify learners and trainees, from the class-room to the workplace?

Are you considering the recent developments in e-Assessment and the rapid change in the tools, techniques and technologies involved in e-Assessment such as

•        the use of e-proctoring,
•        the excitement around blockchain, AI, and a host of similar developments,
•        the successful deployment of large scale assessments for recruitment and selection, staff development, compliance and the like,
•        the up take of credentialing and open badges,
•        the emergence of paperless examination projects in colleges, schools and classrooms around the world,
•        the benefits and opportunities of big data and understanding the learner,
•        the impact of globalisation and transnational standards,
•        the drivers of social media,
•        the need for 'Bring Your Own Devices' strategies and deployment,
•        the growth of e-portfolios,
•        the concerns over cyber security, transparency and confidentiality of data
•        the proliferation of question types,
•        the integration with e-Learning and back-office systems,
•        the rise of government initiatives and policies around the world,
•        the expectations and demands of a 'cyber' generation of digital natives… etc.

and how we are going to manage the adoption, the change and impact of each and all of these.

We are delighted to announce the 2019 conference and exhibition, which will take transformation as its theme, looking at both:
•                  the way that e-Assessment is effecting learning and assessment processes in education, training and development to the benefit of learners, employees  and institutions, and
