6th International NEPS Conference

Methodological Innovations in Educational Large-Scale Assessments

June 8, 2021 | virtual | LIfBi

The NEPS conference series of the Leibniz Institute for Educational Trajectories (LIfBi, Bamberg) brings together scientists from different disciplines and from different stages of their academic careers to discuss current projects and findings in educational research. This year, the main focus of the NEPS Conference will be on the advancement of methodological practices in educational large-scale assessments. We will discuss neglected problems and innovative solutions for the analysis of psychological constructs across heterogeneous contexts and life stages.

A keynote lecture by Matthias von Davier (Boston College, U.S.) and an opening presentation by Suzanne Jak (University of Amsterdam, NL) will highlight current trends in the modeling and analysis of complex data structures. Moreover, a preconference workshop by Carolin Hahnel (DIPF) will give the opportunity to learn about the analysis of log data from computerized assessments. In addition, we invite empirical contributions, statistical simulations, and software presentations on methods in educational large-scale assessment.

The full "Call for Presentations" is available (external) here.

Due to the uncertain situation resulting from the pandemic, the entire event will take place in a virtual format without physical presence. Conference language is English.
