Preparing for a Renaissance in Assessment

This report by Pearson’s Chief Education Advisor, Sir Michael Barber, and assessment expert, Dr Peter Hill, says that new technologies will transform assessment and testing in education.

In a Q&A session about the essay, Michael Barber says, “We are about to see big changes in the possibilities of assessment as a result of technology. Current assessment systems around the world are deeply wedded to traditional testing and exams and, some might argue, are holding us back from potential reforms. We should seize the opportunity and not cling to the past.”
