RM Results to discuss examiner behaviour data at the IAEA Conference
From 22nd– 27th September, I’ll be joining education leaders from around the world to share innovative ideas on educational assessment at the International Association for Educational Assessment Conference (IAEA). RM Results is Silver Sponsor of the Conference, which is hosted by The State Examination Center (SEC) of Azerbaijan and will take place at the Fairmont Hotel in Baku, Azerbaijan.
The event promises to be well-attended; with representatives from national examination centres, awarding bodies and researchers in the area of assessment from over 50 countries. The theme for this year’s conference is Assessment and Decision Making: Individual and Institutional Solutions. The conference will focus on topics such as the reliability and validity of assessments in decision-making, e-assessment and technology advanced platforms, and assessment data and decision making responsibility.
I will deliver a presentation about the use of examiner behaviour data. In my presentation, I will share insights on patterns of marking and demonstrate how best to interpret examiner behaviour during a marking session. I will also show how this data can be used to inform decision making.
I am also looking forward to hearing from some great keynote speakers, including Dr Hanan Khalifa, Dr Amra Sabic-El-Rayess of Columbia University, Prof. Peter Tymms, Durham University and Prof. Nathan R Kuncel, University of Minnesota.
