NCME 2017 Special Conference
Classroom Assessment and Large-Scale Psychometrics: The Twain Shall Meet
Sept. 12–14, 2017 • University of Kansas • Lawrence, Kan.
From September 12–14, 2017, the National Council for Measurement in Education (NCME) will host a 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.
The conference will feature a variety of sessions centered around topics ranging from accessibility and equity to various uses of assessment and approaches to data gathering, analysis, and reporting methods.
