Testing Then and Now, 2013
AERI's second conference was held on December 9, 2013 as a part of TC's 125th anniversary year celebrations.
Discussions on educational testing can become heated in both academic and public circles today. But, how many remember the historical rationales, conceptualizations, and drivers of the educational testing movement in its early days, framed around the core teaching and learning goals of schools and traceable to Teachers College (TC), Columbia University in the 1900s? As a part of TC’s 125th anniversary, the conference, Testing Then and Now will examine the history and the future of educational measurement, assessment and evaluation at home and abroad, searching for deeper understandings of contemporary issues as a means to pave the way forward.
