When & Where
The eAA has three major goals:
- to provide professional support for workers in this field of expertise;
- create and communicate the positive contributions that technology makes to assessment
- and produce a statement of good practice for commercial organisations.
The eAA is a strong and independent professional body, whose voice influences developments in e-Assessment.
'The eAA campaigns for the widening of the effective use of e-Assessment in support of learning. The eAA will do this by encouraging individuals and organisations to make good use of e-Assessment, by explaining the issues to the public, and by influencing educational thinking and policy.'
