DESPITE BAD WEATHER AND DISRUPTED TRAVEL THE ninth annual Scottish e-Assessment conference took place on 29th January 2015 at the HIlton Grosvenor, Edinburgh
Working with SQA and looking at the practical issues of selecting, implementing and using e-Assessment and related technologies and techniques, the conference provided a fascinating day.
Scotland has been at the forefront of developing and implementing learning that is assessed using the latest IT and ICT techniques and technologies. The conference speakers, through a range of presentations and case studies, looked at how Curriculum for Excellence is an opportunity to develop and extend opportunities for digitising the assessment process.
The conference speakers also used their experience to highlight what they see as the opportunities, looking at recent innovations and approaches in the use of technology and how these are now being adopted and developed by providers and by organisations such as SQA
