A primary goal of The National Center for Assessment (NCA) is to support research and development in the field of assessment here and globally. Hence, the Center periodically organizes an international conference to help spread knowledge and proper assessment practices.
Based on the success of the First International Conference held in Riyadh; December, 2012, the NCA has taken decision to hold the Second International Conference for Assessment between 1st-3rd of December, 2015, under the theme: “Learning Outcomes Assessment”.
The importance of learning outcomes assessment is twofold: First, the relevance of the conference theme to the mission of the Center, which is its commitment to promote a high level of efficiency in educational systems. Second, there is an inseparable relationship between learning outcomes assessment, in public or higher education, and the standards for accreditation and quality assurance.
This conference will be a scholarly platform to discuss research, studies, and national and international practices regarding this vital component of Education. The Center will present its experience in assessing learning outcomes, specifically the National Project for Assessing Learning Outcomes in Higher Education.
Finally, I invite all specialized centers and individuals to attend, present related studies and new findings, and benefit from the event, wishing success for all.
