8th International CAA Conference
I attended the 8th International CAA Conference this week which was held at Loughborough University. Almost 200 people from all over the world attended and the event covered a wide range of issues relating to e-assessment.
This is my second visit to the Conference and the standard was as high as last year. There was an excellent keynote lecture from Randy Bennett of ETS which is responsible for the SAT tests in the States. His talk focussed on the operational issues involved in introducing online assessment into American schools. There were also lots of interesting workshops on various issues such as technical standards, CAA in Mathematics and student perceptions of CAA. I would highly recommend this two event to anyone with an interest in online assessment. I plan to update my FAQ with the new information I gained through attending this event.
