Closing General Session

Panel Discussion: Predicting the future for assessment and learning

Thursday, April 29th 3:35 - 4:35 PM EST

Assessment and learning practices continue to change with the past year accelerating the pace. The evolution of technology trends, in school and at home options, advancement of test centers, item type improvements, and the list goes on. What was not expected was the impact of COVID-19 on how everything would speed up new options, change operational functions, and make programs reevaluate how they want to assess students and candidates. What will happen next?

Please join this dynamic group of visionaries as they discuss how the industry will evolve. Each of them are playing key roles in driving the industry forward by advancing the practice of learning and assessment.
