From October 8-10, 2018, the National Council for Measurement in Education (NCME) will host the second annual conference on the confluence of classroom assessment and large-scale psychometrics and related disciplines. Historically, different assessment perspectives regarding classroom assessment have operated in isolation. The purpose of this conference is to bring together the many voices and perspectives of experts and practitioners of assessment in order to improve student learning. This year’s theme is Assessment in the Disciplines.
