Successful edition of the 2022 European Conference of the Association of Test Publishers (ATP) has just drawn to a close

It’s a wrap ! A successful edition of the 2022 European Conference of the Association of Test Publishers (ATP) just drew to a close. Three days of intensive networking with experts from the assessment world. And, of course, attending sessions, round tables and panels to be aware of the pioneering breakthroughs in the industry. The closing keynote conveyed the message that we are at a crossroads, where ethical values take precedence over economic considerations to ensure inclusive access to an equitable testing experience for all. cApStAn co-founder Steve Dept commented that he believes that progress has been made in raising awareness of the importance of quality assurance in test localisation, looping in the experts in the workflows. “A memorable conference, looking forward to taking stock of this progress in Vienna next year”.

Steve was one of the members of a panel discussion on “Fairness in Testing”, on October 11, moderated by John Weiner from PSI, together with Sara Ratner, Giulia Bianchi and Andre Allen MBA, GPHR. Report on the panel discussion to follow.
