The international conference on E-Assessment in Mathematical Sciences is a two-day academic conference organised by Newcastle University.
The conference aims to bring together researchers and practitioners with an interest in e-assessment for mathematics and the sciences. Running over two days, it will consist of a mix of presentations of new techniques, and pedagogic research, as well as workshops where you can get hands-on with leading e-assessment software.
Chris leads the e-learning unit in the School of Mathematics & Statistics at Newcastle University, overseeing e-assessment within the school and delivery of mathematical support to other parts of the University.
Bill has been involved in e-assessment for mathematical sciences since 1991. During that time he and his teams have implemented successful large-scale systems at Brunel and Newcastle Universities. He has researched, written and reported extensively on these and other developments.
Christian Lawson-Perfect is the lead developer of the open-source Numbas mathematical e-assessment system. He has a broad knowledge of the e-assessment landscape.
