IACAT 2019: Improving Assessment with Adaptivity and AI

IACAT welcomes proposals for session presentations on any aspect of CAT or other AI approaches to improving assessment

There are two types of proposals: standard sessions and coordinated sessions (symposia).  Standard sessions will be 20-30 minutes long and will be grouped together with similar proposals from other presenters in a time slot (around 1 hour).  If you wish to group several sessions together yourself, you and your colleagues can submit a coordinated set of up to 4 proposals together, and reserve the entire time slot.
