2014 International Computer Assisted Assessment (CAA) Conference
Research into E-Assessment
30 June & 1 July 2014, Zeist, The Netherlands
The International CAA is a two-day research-led conference
The Open University of the Netherlands & SURF
The Conference aims to advance the understanding and application of information technology to the assessment process (e-assessment) through rigorous peer-reviewed research. As in previous years, the conference will be of particular interest to those involved in the pedagogic and technical aspects of e-assessment and those involved in strategy, policy and implementation, such as managers and support services.
With 3 special tracks (eAssessment in Practice; eAssessment in dental, veterinary, medical education and the health domain; Learning Analytics for Assessment) the conference seeks to connect currently separated communities. Submissions of the conference will be published in an edited volume of the Communications in Computer and Information Science (CCIS) series with Springer. The best full-papers will be invited to a special issue of the SSCI-index and open access publication The Turkish Online Journal of Educational Technology (TOJET).
We are happy to announce the second confirmed keynote speaker for the conference.
