The State Examination Center of the Republic of Azerbaijan (SEC) will host the 45th International Association for Educational Assessment (IAEA) Annual Conference on 22 – 27 September 2019, in Baku, Azerbaijan. We are honored to invite you to participate in the most exciting event of the year among the IAEA’s members and guests.
We are at an important time in assessment science and practice in education and the workforce and have a large base of evidence of the characteristics that are important in school and carry over into success at work and life in general. Now, more importantly, as the experts in the field, we have the mission of improving our assessments to better fit them within the changing nature of educational progress, technological advances, and economic growth.
So, consistent with the theme of the IAEA2019 Conference, we will provide a platform for professionals and academics in the area of assessment. This will allow the presentation of challenges and solutions of their work relating to the reference of assessment data and implications of decision-making. The Conference should then contribute to improved assessment practices either at individual learner level or within an institutional context.
I do hope that you will join us for what promises to be a stimulating, professional and educational event and look forward to welcoming you in Baku.
