The International Language Assessment Conference in Egypt (ILACE) is proudly offered through a partnership between the British Council and the American University in Cairo. ILACE 2021 is taking place virtually from September 3-4, 2021.

With more than a year into a global pandemic, the world has become a different place. Education and assessment are no exception. The new reality has come with many changes. Those changes sometimes imposed challenges on educators and the entire educational system, but also many of those challenges have been transformed into great opportunities.

Hot issues such as using technology in assessment, high-stakes exams, test designs, and inclusive assessments are gaining more and more interest every day. ILACE 2021 is keen to shine a light on these issues during this year’s conference. ELT practitioners and assessment specialists will meet to discuss and share their expertise in various critical areas: test development and design, online assessment, assessment literacy, artificial intelligence in language assessment, alternative assessment, and learning-oriented assessment. Therefore, teacher professional development, including conferences, must hinge more and more on assessment awareness and expertise to promote and maintain quality learning and teach as expected by all stakeholders involved, including learners, their current and future employers, and others in society.

ILACE 2021 seeks to address these areas by inviting proposals that help us bridge the gap between theory and practice, supporting teachers in their assessment literacy and ultimately their ability to enact meaningful, appropriate, and accurate classroom assessments that can help students obtain quality learning.

The conference organizers invite proposal submissions from all educators who are interested in language assessment.

The deadline for receiving proposals is extended until July 8, 2021, and can be submitted at this link:  https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLSfIsMLy-pZgPU4ynOxhiLV6gRCAX8Oe_yS_VTw5Noi18qfVGQ/viewform?fbclid=IwAR0h8YLFL6RvumXdvm9p9frN7iiWyMdcA5AoR7RS18WFlcj9DPPOumQEIz4
