This conference focuses on how educational assessment professionals are adapting their work to the changing role of assessment. There are significant differences between the extent and level of assessment experience found in institutes responsible for educational measurement as well as between professionals.These differences can be found in roles, in tradition, in type of tests or exams and in mode of delivery.
NFER has undertaken a small-scale research project involving a literature review and a number of case studies, of a range of countries which have made the switch to onscreen testing at a national level. Key government personnel with responsibility for implementing Computer-Based Assessment (CBA) were interviewed about the motivations and drivers for moving onscreen, the challenges that were encountered and the methods used to overcome those challenges. NFER's Louise Bailey will be presenting on the topic at 14:45 CET on Thursday 8 November.
