Founded in 2008, the e-Assessment Association is a not-for-profit membership organisation representing all industry sectors with an interest in e-Assessment including schools, FE and HE through to qualification providers, regulators, technology providers and industry consultants, both from the UK and internationally. With over 1,800 members worldwide we have three main goals:
- to promote better assessment of knowledge, skills and capabilities of people through technology.
- to build awareness of the benefits that technology brings to assessment, particularly around delivering better learning and assessment, rather than just greater efficiency.
- to ensure we have a strong voice and influence in the key policy debates involving the assessment of learning, training and competency.
Membership is for individuals and membership is free.

The History of the International e-Assessment Conference and Awards
Geoff Chapman, Management and Business Development Consultant, former Vice-Chairman of the e-Assessment Association and co-founder of trade publication World Exam Tech founded the e-Assessment Question as a focal point for the sector with the first event held in February 2003 in London. You can read the story of the e-Assessment Question Conference here.
In 2020 the e-Assessment Association organised the e-Assessment Question Conference for the first time. Due to COVID restrictions the face to face event was replaced with a series of four online events held in June and July 2020.
In 2021 the e-Assessment Awards and Conference were combined into one event, the 2021 International e-Assessment Awards which took place online over four weeks in June 2021. Reflecting the truly International nature of the e-Assessment Association and Awards programme, each session brought together industry experts to consider key topics in the area of e-Assessment.
In 2022 we were delighted to deliver a face-to-face conference and awards gala dinner held in London in June which was attended by over 180 delegates. In 2023 the conference will take place in London on 6th and 7th June.
