Cambridge Assessment shares expertise at IAEA
Cambridge Assessment recently took part in the 33rd annual conference of the International Association for Educational Assessment (IAEA) in Baku, Azerbaijan.
The aim of the conference was to share expertise in assessment with representatives from ministries of education and other education professionals from around the world.
The main purpose of the IAEA is to assist educational agencies in the development and appropriate application of educational assessment techniques to improve the quality of education. This year’s conference was hosted by The State Students Admission Commission of the Republic of Azerbaijan and attended by 343 delegates representing 43 countries.
Members of the Research Division at Cambridge Assessment presented six papers – including a paper on Promoting Educational Quality Through National Assessment Services by Tim Oates and Sylvia Green of Cambridge Assessment.
It was announced at the conference that Cambridge Assessment will be the host for the 34th annual conference – which will take place in Cambridge from 7-12 September 2008.
Conference Organiser Jennifer Roberts of Cambridge Assessment, said: “The IAEA 2008 conference is a major event within the programme of activities for Cambridge Assessment's 150th anniversary celebrations. The IAEA anticipates that next year’s event could be its biggest ever conference and, even though registration does not open until January, we have already received a lot of interest from delegates from around the world.”
