Overview

International Assessment Conference

Experimental science has always been central to science teaching and learning, but there have been concerns raised in recent years about how experimental science is being assessed.

This conference, which took place on 12 October 2016, sought to refocus the science and assessment communities on the possibilities there might be in the future to assess experimental science in a way that more closely matches the opportunities that science learning could offer in the modern classroom.

To achieve this, the conference brought together experts from the UK, Ireland, mainland Europe, Australia and the US, it considered research and perspectives from assessment research in science education and, crucially, other subject domains, and it looked at the potential of technology for messages, practices and potential that might inform science learning and assessment through experimental science.
