Welcome and News

tick‘Congratulations on running a fantastic conference. I have attended many T&L conferences over the years and this was by far the best’ (conference delegate email, 2013). 

Sue Bloxham (2) croppedWe look forward to your visit to the 5th International Assessment in Higher Education Conference which will be held on 24th & 25th June 2015 in Birmingham, UK.

The call for papers is now open and the themes invite a wider and more critical range of symposia, papers, practice exchanges and posters. The deadline for submission is 5th January 2015. For details and criteria for submission, click here. To make a submission, click here

Conference Themes:

  • Learning and contemporary higher education assessment
  • Student responses to assessment
  • Assessment Literacies
  • Assessment research: theory, method and critique
  • Diversity and inclusion
  • Institutional change and assessment
  • Overcoming specific assessment challenges

Feedback on the 4th conference‘This was the most friendly conference I have ever been to and one of the best overall’; ‘I found the quality of presentations very high’; ‘excellent organisation, good range of presenters’. The 2015 conference will build on the success of this multi-national event. We are keeping it sufficiently small to maintain the friendly, inclusive atmosphere but sufficiently large to ensure excellent debate of innovative and challenging ideas.

We are holding the conference in Birmingham, UK for a second time because of its balance between good transport links and lower costs enabling us to maintain reasonable delegate fees. We are returning to the same, high quality venue but providing more accommodation for parallel sessions and dedicated exhibitor space and we have negotiated very preferential rates for accommodation in the brand new complex Staybridge Suites close by.   Contributors’ presentations will be made available on-line.
