Fwd: Announcing the ‘The e-Assessment-Question 2011’ Conference and Exhibition

Announcing the 'The e-Assessment-Question 2011' Conference and Exhibition
London, 30th and 31st March 2011

Now in its ninth year, the e-Assessment Question is the key Conference and Exhibition examining the practical aspects of e-Assessment and Computer Based Testing and its use from the classroom to the workplace.  The main theme for 2011 will be 'Assessment of learning, assessment for learning, assessment is learning' with a keynote address from Chris Jones Director-General City and Guilds and an impressive line-up of speakers.  Other features of this year's conference include:

A session entitled "The role and importance of technology in assessing and supporting learners in the classroom and the workplace".  This is a special eAA (e-Assessment Association) led session on Day One (pm) which will conclude with the 2011 AGM of the eAA. A keynote address from John Stone, CEO, LSN, will lead into a "Question Time" debate with leading e-Assessment experts.

A sub-theme looking at mobile assessment. This will culminate in a workshop (day two, pm) which will focus on using your mobile, pda, laptop, iphone, ipad, kindle etc.  to access formative assessments, including a hands-on session led by Stuart Jones of Abel Consulting.  We are indebted to them for the development of an e-Assessment APP for the conference.

An Exhibition of leading suppliers in the field of e-Assessment and the opportunity to meet and network with those selecting, developing and implementing e-Assessment in all its broad forms from the classroom to the workplace.
