The Cirrus Assessment team is busily preparing for this year’s e-Assessment Question Conference. The event takes place on Wednesday and Thursday (22/23 March) at America Square Conference Centre, London.
This year, the Assessment Tomorrow team is proud to be hosting their 15th annual e-Assessment Question event. It promises to be better than ever.
The conference is entitled e-Assessment: Commissioning, Implementing and Delivering. It brings together all those organisations and individuals with an interest in e-Assessment. Providers, researchers, innovators and assessors have the opportunity to share their experiences and to move the industry forwards.
The tools and technologies used in e-Assessment are constantly evolving. The e-Assessment Question 2017 promises to discuss these elements, look at issues that offer opportunities for providers and to consider risks that must be balanced and faced head on.
The First International e-Assessment Awards
This year’s conference also coincides with the first ever International e-Assessment Awards. The awards will be presented at a Gala Dinner at the Doubletree by Hilton, Tower of London. Cirrus Assessment is delighted to be shortlisted for an award alongside our colleagues from the National Council for the Training of Journalists (the NCTJ). Take a look at the shortlist for this year’s awards.
