2015 International Computer Assisted Assessment Conference (CAA 2015) – Research  & Practice in E-Assessment Call for contributions

The 2015 International  Computer Assisted Assessment Conference (CAA 2015) is a unique event connecting  researchers, practitioners and policy makers to address current challenges and  advances in the field of E-Assessment. In its 18th edition the conference targets  to represent the state-of-the-art and different perspectives on the conception,
development, evaluation and implementation of computer-assisted assessment in  different sectors like primary education, secondary (vocational) education, higher (vocational) education but also professional learning and non-formal learning.

The conference consists of two main tracks: Research in E-Assessment and Practice in E-Assessment. The conference seeks to connect the research and development communities.

We are inviting proposals for paper presentations, case studies, demo’s or posters (see Proposal Types) addressing computer assisted assessment through one of the following themes: E-Assessment quality, E-Assessment Methodologies and E-Assessment Technologies. We are interested in research papers and development papers in which best practices are presented of technology-based formative or summative assessment in schools, higher education, informal learning and workplace learning. See Themes for more information.

    • For practice papers: Problem description, Challenges, Main questions or problem statement related to your case, Solutions, Evaluation of solution, Main conclusion and Contribution to practice
  • Session Delivery Format:
    The organization encourages you to consider a presentation format that will engage your colleagues in discussion and learning beyond the simple dissemination of information. Sessions may follow one of these formats:

    • Paper sessions are oral presentations with discussion of a paper in a session with another paper presentation.  Paper sessions are scheduled for one  or one-and-a-half hours, with two or three presenters, each with approximately 20 minutes for their presentation and 10 minutes of discussion. Room set-up:  lecture theatre or large seminar room with computer and data projector
    • Interactive poster sessions involve up to six posters. A short oral presentation of up to 5 minutes for each poster is given to an audience gathered as a group. After the authors’ brief presentations, the presenters place themselves besides their posters to conduct in-depth discussions with interested attendees. Poster sessions offer researchers the chance to present their work in a visual format and offer more opportunities for interaction and discussion. Timing: poster sessions are scheduled for one hour. Room set-up: large hall or seminar room with walls to display posters. Please bring posters in A0 or A1 format, materials for fixing posters to the walls will be provided.
    • Round table sessions offer opportunities for a discursive exploration of research issues. Presenters explain their research idea or project and invites the participants to help discuss emerging data or to solve a research issue or problem. Timing: round table sessions are scheduled for one hour. Room set-up: seminar room with a board-room style table.
    • E-Assessment Demonstrations allow presenters to display, explain and familiarise users with innovative teaching or research tools or methods. The presentation may include references to completed research, but the point of the session is to demonstrate the tool, product or presentation, not present the research for criticism. The audience may offer their viewpoints and share their experiences with similar tools or different tools for the same purpose. Timing: demonstrations are scheduled in a session of one hour. Room set-up: seminar room with computer and data projector
