Assessment Tomorrow, UK, is delighted to announce its fifth annual e-Assessment Question Conference and Exhibition with a challenging theme: “Not just Technology but also People”. The conference is already established as the leading event examining the practical aspects of implementing e-Assessment and Computer Based Testing and Assessment in education, training and professional development. This year’s event is larger than ever and reflects the growing range of e-Assessment in UK schools, colleges, universities and in the workplace. A range of use of e-Assessment that runs from classroom and personal learning, through to formal qualifications, and on to psychometric testing and occupational psychology will be discussed and showcased. According to Mr Jeff M Ross, Director, Assessment Tomorrow: “ the main objective of running knowledge seminars, workshops, exhibitions and conferences is to raise the awareness of the importance of e-Assessment, in all its forms from electronic testing to e-portfolio management in measuring Competency, Skills, Knowledge & Understanding”. “ The prime focus of Assessment Tomorrow, is to share knowledge and experience and use of the same with IT to measure skills and capabilities changes the whole paradigm”, says Mr Ross. The “ highest form of understanding” which the ancient Greek Philosopher Aristotle had talked about is the one that needs to be showcased through proper assessment of the knowledge and skills gap, feels Mr Ross.

Managed by Assessment Tomorrow Ltd., the conference boasts an impressive line-up of authoritative speakers from education and industry. The Conference includes a key note address from QCA and is sponsored by world leading organisations such as Thomson Prometric and important education bodies such the Institute of Educational Assessors. A very strong line-up of exhibitors have committed to exhibiting at the conference.

Assessment inevitably sets the agenda for education and training. Similarly e-Assessment will define the processes, the quality and the opportunities for the achievement of qualifications and the recognition of learning in the 21st century. The conference will debate the challenge of how to make these developments efficient, trusted and cost-effective and demonstrate the theme of the conference - ‘Not just Technology but also People’.

The e-Assessment-Question conference and exhibition will take place on 8th and 9th March 2007 at the Shaw Theatre and Novotel Euston London. For further details including the list of speakers and contributing organisations please check www.e-assessment-question.co.uk
