CAF 2009  -  23. - 24. September 2009  -  Villach, Austria
First Special Track on
Computer-based Knowledge & Skill Assessment and Feedback in Learning
Settings (CAF)
Online Information: http://www.iicm.edu/CAF2009 
This CfP is also available as PDF: http://www.iicm.edu/CAF2009/CAF2009-CfP.pdf
This special track will take place during ICL 2008 in Villach, Austria
(23-25 September 2009) as a special program item. 
The Special Track CAF 2009 provides an interdisciplinary forum for
international scientists and practitioners to discuss various aspects of
computer-based knowledge & skill assessment in learning settings and based
on that feedback provision for students and teachers.
The International Conference on Interactive Computer aided Learning (ICL) is
an interdisciplinary conference which aims to focus on the exchange of
relevant trends and research results as well as the presentation of
practical experiences in interactive computer aided learning.
Background
Our modern life at the beginning of the 21st century is strongly influenced
by effects such as rapidly changing and developing information,
technology-enhanced communication and information access, and new forms of
production and services in a globalized world. This situation requires
individuals to adapt their skills and competencies. Consequently,
educational objectives and societal expectations have changed significantly
in recent years. Modern learning settings must consider learning community
aspects as well as learner-centered, knowledge-centered and
assessment-centered aspects.
By focusing on the assessment, this concept can be further distinguished in
(1) summative assessment, performed at the end of a set of learning
activities, and (2) formative assessment, which is intended to give
continuous feedback to students and teachers. The latter mentioned formative
assessment gives information about the current state of knowledge and/or the
degree of knowledge acquisition within learning activities.
Assessment is an important component of modern teaching and learning
processes in face-to-face courses as well as in e-learning environments; it
provides valuable feedback to teachers and students which allows the
revision and adaptation of teaching and learning activities. Furthermore,
assessment activities and results can also be utilized for building and
strengthening metacognitive skills. However, continuous and frequent
assessment in learning processes may cause excessive efforts and costs.
Therefore, computer-assisted assessment systems (CaAS) and computer-based
assessment systems (CbAS) have become of increasing interest over the years.
Assessment systems may support parts or the entire chain of the assessment
lifecycle. This lifecycle includes authoring and management of assessment
items, compilation of specific tests, performance of assessments, and
compilation and management results. Additionally, emerging interest in the
sharing and re-use of assessment items or compiled assessment tests and the
exchangeability of assessment outcomes has resulted in standardization
efforts, such as the IMS Question & Test Interoperability Specification (IMS
QTI).
The special track will bring together international researchers as well as
practitioners from different organisations who will have plenty of time for
networking and real-world knowledge sharing.
 We invite submissions that deal with issues including, but not limited to:
•	Aspects of formative and summative assessment
•	History and challenges of e-assessment
