Future secured for International e-Assessment Conference
Assessment Tomorrow and the e-Assessment Association (eAA) agree partnership for the e-Assessment Question Conference
Assessment Tomorrow and the eAA today announce the signing of a Memorandum of Understanding to take forward the e-Assessment Question Conference and Exhibition (www.e-assessment-question.com).
The 2019 e-Assessment Question conference (10th and 11th April 2019), now in its 17th year, has become one of the key events on the education calendar for the UK and beyond. It brings together public and private sector institutions, awarding organisations, technology companies, policymakers and other educationalists that share an interest in improving assessment.
Matt Wingfield, chairman of the eAA, comments:
“The e-Assessment Question has become one of the most influential gatherings in education technology. The Spring conference has steadily grown to become one of the main annual events in the edtech calendar, and has seen major deals and policy decisions originated from within its doors.”
Jeff Ross, director at Assessment Tomorrow, comments:
“We are confident that the eAA is well placed to drive the conference forward, evolving the format in partnership with its members and industry sponsors to ensure it remains relevant to the needs of this rapidly maturing sector.”
The eAA already organises the e-Assessment Awards to promote best practice within the sector as part of the conference programme and the 3rd annual awards dinner will be held on the evening of 10th April.
From 2020, the eAA will take over the organisation of the conference and exhibition with support from Assessment Tomorrow.
