The Europe-ATP Steering Committee is hard at work planning the 2019 Conference, scheduled for 25-27 September, in Madrid. This year’s Conference  theme is: “Transforming Assessments: Challenge. Collaborate. Inspire.”

 “The assessment community - like much of society in general - is constantly in a state of flux. Europe, particularly, represents a community that, despite being diverse in approach, culture, and language, is overcoming barriers to collaborate on achieving the common goal of transforming assessment for the better. That’s what this conference is all about,” according to  2019 E-ATP Chair Belinda Brunner of Inteleos.

The 2019 E-ATP program will consist of a diverse choice of breakout sessions, product demonstrations, ignite sessions, and Peas in a Pod discussions. New this year will be transforming assessment debates and snapshot sessions.

 Topics that will be covered include: Privacy and protection of personal data, Test Security and Integrity; Emerging Technologies: Gamification, Blockchain, Biometrics, and Wearables; Artificial Intelligence (AI), Machine Learning, and Cognitive Computing; Badging, and the digitization of credentials; Adaptive and the personalization of assessment; Inclusivity in assessment; Best practice and industry standards; Authentic Assessment; The business of Certifications, Qualifications and Accreditation; Internationalization of assessment programs.
