‘Using  ICT   to  measure  skills,  understanding  and  knowledge

Annual Conference and Exhibition

2010 8th Year

About the Conference and Exhibition

As e-Assessment, the use of computer based assessment, is  increasingly becoming  part of the mainstream in the classroom and the workplace.

The challenge for those developing, selecting and implementing e-Assessment solutions is to balance the desire for innovation and development with the need to maintain quality, validity and reliability.

This, the 8th annual e-Assessment Question Conference examined these issues and with the help of expert speakers and acknowledged practitioners ,looked at the practical aspects of implementing valid, reliable and innovative e-Assessment

A broad range of learning, training and study is now assessed using technology. The scope and coverage grows each year

    The tools and techniques in the marketplace are becoming increasingly sophisticated and traditional doubts and barriers are being overcome.

    A number of large scale qualifications are using e-Assessment and considerable experience is being gained in education, training and industry.

    There is an increasing expectation by students, employees, assessors and government that the technology will be available to use in a secure, robust and fit for purpose manner.

    The e-Assessment Question has become the key event for discussing all the issues surrounding the practical application of computerised testing and assessment. The impressive attendance of the last seven years and the wide range of speakers and exhibitors have shown that there is real interest from the classroom to the workplace in the use of e-Assessment.

This the eighth conference, as with the first seven annual e-Assessment Question events, was a broad based international conference and exhibition. The conference  provides an excellent conference to hear and see practical guidance and advice about e-Assessment and computer based testing and assessment systems. We are proud that over its long history the event  has played a significant role in:

  1. raising the awareness of the importance of e-Assessment,
  2. bringing the major players together at one event for an exchange of ideas and to review lessons learnt and opportunities taken and
  3. providing a forum for developing the debate on the selection and use of e-Assessment.
