Date : du 05-10-2021 au 07-10-2021
Lieu : à distance
Modalité : intégralement à distance
Organisation : International Association for Educational Assessment (IAEA)
The COVID-19 pandemic provided huge challenges for organisations around the world trying to run their high stakes assessments for young people in schools and colleges. Established methods had to be modified or even abandoned completely. This IAEA event will be an opportunity to explore collectively what we have learned from that experience that might be applied to future assessments for the benefit of students.
