Aims of AEA-Europe
AEA-Europe acts as a platform for discussion of developments in educational assessment in Europe, fostering co-operation and facilitating liaison between organisations and individuals active in educational assessment across the whole of Europe. AEA-Europe defines educational assessment in its broadest sense by including academic, professional and vocational contexts and is equally concerned with both assessment processes and products.
