Special Interest Groups

AEA-Europe is keen to develop Special Interest Groups (SIGs) to represent the particular expertise and research interests of its members. These groups are a way of  synthesizing inter-disciplinary approaches to assessment research and exploring the different concerns raised at technical, theoretical and practical levels. The first SIG was founded in 2017.

SIG 1: eAssessment

The eAssessment SIG is directed by Martyn Ware (SQA) and a steering group comprising seven members who work in policy, development and academic research. The SIG has a Facebook Group (it is a closed group so you need to ask to join). We also have an email list (please email LWye@aqa.org.uk to join) for those who don’t wish to use Facebook.
