Burleigh Court International Conference Centre, Loughborough University

Now in its 12th year, there are numerous reasons why the Computer Assisted Assessment (CAA) Conference is increasingly popular. These include the wide acceptance and implementation of Virtual Learning Environments and associated tools as the primary vehicle for teaching content delivery within many student portals. The growing importance of standards, not least Question and Test Interoperability (QTI) has had significant impact. Awarding Bodies and service providers are now delivering millions of E-assessments a year and this trend is increasing. The QCA vision statement (http://www.qca.org.uk/7192.html) is a significant driver for E-assessment uptake in the schools and post 16 sector. This sits within the familiar background of increasing student numbers and the need for effective strategies to manage and improve the learning and assessment process for inclusion, widening participation and accessibility. Exploiting overseas markets through effective assessment for distance learners is a further driver.

The conference is relevant to those with an interest in implementation and pedagogy, the more technically minded, and those involved at a strategic level such as policy makers, managers and support services.
