About the conference:  We are seeing e-Assessment built in to the specifications for new qualifications, at the heart of recruitment and human resources development programmes, and as a core to e-learning, mobile learning and digital instruction. However, e-Assessment is developing and changing as a result of:

o    paperless examination projects,
o    e-proctoring,
o    AI,
o    the use of large scale assessments for recruitment and selection,
o    credentialing and open badges,
o    globalisation and transnational standards,
o    the drivers of social media,
o    'Bring Your Own Devices',
o    the growth of e-portfolios,
o    concerns over cyber security, transparency and confidentiality of data
o    the proliferation of question types,
o    integration with e-Learning and back-office systems,
o    the rise of government initiatives and policies around the world,
o    the expectations and demands of digital natives and
o    rapid changes in technology. 

In this environment we must still rise to the challenges of
o    how to achieve the cost benefits we all expect,
o    how to manage the risks,
o    how to overcome press and public indifference, even hostility,
o    how to make e-Assessment fully inclusive,
o    how to deal with cyber security and candidate authentication,
o    how to work in an international marketplace,
o    how to deal with regulators and government,
o    how to handle rapidly changing technology
o    how to manage the expectations of digital natives.

The focus for the 17th annual international e-Assessment Question will be on change, and how we manage these evolving and transforming issues.
Our annual conference on e-Assessment and computer supported assessment and qualifications will be held on the 10th and 11th April 2019 at the America Square Conference Centre in the City of London.

Day One, Wednesday 10th April 2019 will focus on the changing and developing nature of e-Assessment.

Day Two, Thursday 11th April 2019 will focus how e-Assessment is underpinning a world of evolving assessment, learning and training
We trust you or one of your colleagues will be able to join us for what will certainly prove to be an invaluable and thought-provoking event.                            
Jeff Ross, Joint Conference Director, Assessment Tomorrow
