An Open Practitioner with a special interest in leadership, equality and open education, Dr Maren Deepwell will be will be sharing her reflections on 25 years of Learning Technologies Innovation in Education in her keynote speech.

Adaptive Comparative Judgement (ACJ) is an alternative to traditional marking which can improve professional agreement, reduce inconsistency in marking criteria interpretation, avoid teacher bias and vastly improve reliability in assessing writing and other open-ended task types.
In this presentation, headteacher Steve Dew will explain how ACJ is being used to moderate and benchmark writing across a group of previously un-linked primary schools in Oxford. The results of this pilot pioneered by Steve include improved professional consensus and judgement, greater confidence in the reliability of the marking and moderation process, and the potential for schools to reduce teacher workload.

Dr Anja Siserica, speaker at the e-Assessment Question Conference

How higher education institutions, when considering digital exams and their consequent scaling, require strategic thinking on an organisational level in order to achieve maximum benefits. One of the key stakeholders to consider on that journey would be your students, as the digital exams can make a significant positive impact on their education. In this talk, you will learn more about how we acknowledge students’ experience to play a critical role in the implementation and adoption of digital exams, and one of the most influential drivers and metrics for its success. In particular, we will reflect on the case study of the pilot collaboration project conducted at Victoria University of Wellington in New Zealand in 2019, and the impact digital exams delivered on Inspera Assessment platform had on their students’ experience.
