The Conference


The Conversation

Assessment and Education Today


Over the past two years, we’ve experienced a global public health crisis that has disrupted how we live and accelerated change across all industries. Testing is no exception. How we work, learn, and assess today are all different than two years ago, and the current debate is often a discussion of what is the new normal? Our industry has a unique opportunity to shape the evolution of learning, educating, and training through assessment. We have the ability to ensure that future essential workers are qualified, by helping young people become better educated, by ensuring testing is equitable and accessible for all test-takers. We have the opportunity to use assessments to building new pathways for education and workplace success.

Furthering the Conversation

MEA & Education

• Embracing MEA as the launch pad of new trending or disruptive technologies in Assessment and Education. Emerging and novel technologies, or new uses for existing technologies, that have practical applications for the industry, including innovative approaches and technologies such as artificial intelligence and remote proctoring.  
• Educational technology for Early Years and Special Education and to improve student engagement, such as gamification and VR
• Raising the status and highlighting the importance of vocational education. Vocational education for a digital world is likely to lead to credentialing and increased market value for workers.
• Measuring the hard-to-measure qualities of creativity, leadership, and emotional intelligence. Using assessment and technology to measure aspects of students' abilities other than academic achievement (creative, artistic, SEL)
• Using technology and assessment in the realm of children and individuals with Learning Challenges including methods and practices for ensuring fairness, accessibility, and accommodations for diverse stakeholders.
• Data Management, stewardship, and reporting inclusive of all aspects of collecting, transmitting, processing, storing, analyzing, reporting, and securing data.
• Internationalisation of assessment and education in MEA. Does private education mean international education? Government policy targeted towards transforming education.
• The digitization of credentials (badging, micro credentialing).

to-and we knew the region had an appetite for
the work that We have to offer"
