Announcing the launch of the 2021 e-Assessment Awards
The e-Assessment Awards is now open for entries for the 2021 Awards. Recognising excellence, the awards are an opportunity to showcase globally the very best practice, research and innovation in testing and assessment, where the use of technology has enabled transformation, improved outcomes and enhanced learning and teaching.
Organised by the e-Assessment Association, a not-for-profit membership association and supported by PSI as the Headline Sponsor, the international awards invites applications from organisations worldwide including test publishers, academic institutions, awarding organisations, researchers and technology providers working within the assessment industry.
“Now, more than ever, it would seem vital to share our sector’s knowledge and experience collectively as one strong voice and source of information, to build approaches that not only help address the short-medium term challenges created by the pandemic, but that also provide insight and exemplars of a possible way forward, which more fully embraces technology to deliver learning and assessment approaches fit for the 21st century.” states eAA Chairman, Matt Wingfield.
The categories and criteria have been updated and the Association is now looking for entries for the following awards: Lifetime Contribution, Best Formative Assessment Project, Best Summative Assessment Project, Most Innovative Use of Technology in Assessment, Best Transformational Project, Best Research, Best International Implementation and new for 2021, Best Workplace or Talent Assessment Project.
“The last 12 months have undoubtedly been challenging, yet at the same time it has been a seminal period for the eAssessment industry as a whole. The lockdown and social distancing measures that were implemented as a result of COVID-19 have driven major change in the industry, as organisations sought ways to continue to assess their test takers securely, safely and accurately.” states Janet Garcia, President at PSI.
“The industry has had to advance in terms of technology and delivery methodology far quicker than would otherwise have been the case, and although this has created challenges, we should all celebrate the ability of our industry to adapt so well to these wholly unforeseen circumstances.
So that is why, for 2021, PSI is immensely proud, once again, to be sponsoring the eAssessment Awards and recognising all those that have worked tirelessly over the last year to make sure the eAssessment industry not only survives, but thrives.”
