This year’s annual International Association for Educational Assessment (IAEA) conference, hosted by the department’s Centre for Educational Assessment, welcomed over 400 participants from examination boards across the globe to St Catherine’s College, Oxford from 9 – 14 September.

The theme for the conference was Assessment and Big Data, with keynotes delivered by Rebecca Eynon (Department of Education), Art Graesser (University of Memphis) and Michelle Meadows (Ofqual), which focused on the social implications of Big Data and data tracking and the use of intelligent agents in tutoring and assessment, to the opportunities and limitations of data as a regulatory tool.

The conference also included an opening address from the University’s Vice Chancellor and an introduction to the conference theme by the department’s Director, Professor Jo-Anne Baird.
