The EdTech & Computational Psychometrics Summit (ECPS) is a virtual summit that shines a light on the science of testing and its broad impact on the design and delivery of life-long learning solutions.
"ECPS is a deep dive into how computational psychometrics interfaces with emerging educational technologies to create new and better ways to support all learners – whether they are in a K-12 classroom, a college classroom, a workplace setting, or a remote learning environment. This year we will take a closer look at all the issues surrounding digital-first assessments, which represents a paradigm shift from just converting paper and pencil tests to an electronic version. And we will hear from experts not just concerned with the science behind developing digitized assessments, but also about the application and the business of these new technologies."
– ATP Chair Alina von Davier, Ph.D.
The Summit will kick off on June 7th, and will feature keynote speakers and expert presenters and podcasters including Deborah Quazzo, Managing Partner of GSV Ventures, a venture fund investing in education and workforce skills technologies that are disrupting the $7 Trillion sector and Co-founder of the ASU+GSV Summit; Mike Murphy, Founder and Chief Executive Officer of ProctorFree, a rapidly growing technology company that uses machine learning to improve the quality of education; and Nick Saville,Ph.D. Director of Thought Leadership, Cambridge University Press and Assessment who will address aligning large-scale assessments with classroom-practices to promote lifelong language learning.
"ECPS is a unique opportunity to see the development and application of the science of assessment in what can only be described as a 3-D setting, from design to digitization to application to marketing. Change is happening exponentially, and ATP's mission is to make sure everyone involved in the assessment ecosystem has the opportunity to keep pace with the industry and continue to learn in real time and in meaningful ways."
– ATP CEO William G. Harris, Ph.D.
ECPS '22 will include a Pre-Summit Workshop from a world-class trainer for which attendees can receive a Certificate of Participation.
This year's ECPS will kick off a day early, on June 6th for those who want to participate in a pre-conference workshop: Addressing the Psychometrics Challenges of Digital Learning and Assessment: How Computational Psychometrics Helps, presented by Jiangang Hao, Ph.D., Director of Data Science, ETS. This workshop will be a high-level overview of the important techniques from data science, machine learning, and natural language processing.
"The pre-conference workshop will further enable attendees to enhance their own comprehension and skills, and to communicate their participation and dedication to the field."
– ATP CEO Dr. William G. Harris
