The Conference will be hosted by the National Assessment and Examinations Center (NAEC) - one of the primary members of IAEA and the largest professional organization in the field of Assessment in Georgia.
Featuring the theme “Assessment as a Social Lever”, the conference aims to explore how assessment is used as a change agent to improve social justice and the quality of teaching and learning in education.
The conference will highlight various issues such as:
