The focus this year puts assessment and e-Assessment into the context of qualifications and certification. Both formative and summative assessment inform and very often leads the learning process. A number of organisations and institutions in the UK have been at the forefront of developing and implementing learning and training that is assessed using the latest IT and ICT techniques and technologies.
The range of experiences, options and solutions in the marketplace is growing rapidly. For those selecting, implementing or using computer based assessment (in all its forms) this is challenging and the change management processes, daunting.
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.
