Please join ACTNext as we invite you to attend our two-day symposium examining how advances in educational technology and the emerging field of computational psychometrics are shaping the future of learning and assessment. A broad range of experts will speak on topics affecting the course of learner outcomes for current and future students and professionals. We’ll survey issues related to modeling collaborative problem solving, the role of virtual reality in computational psychometrics, the future of game based assessments, and the impact different media have on educational entertainment, just to name a few. Our invited speakers will be sure to provide thought provoking discussion, challenge conventional wisdom, and provide fertile ground for attendees to network in beautiful Iowa City, one of the nation’s most productive hubs for innovation related to assessment and learning technology.

Distinguished speakers include Dror Ben-NaimJohanna Blakley, Pietro Cipresso, Kristen DiCerbo, Dragan Gašević, Janice Gobert, Peter Halpin, Noshir ContractorDonna Matovinovic and Mark Gierl

In conjunction with the symposium, ACTNext will be accepting submissions for a limited number of poster presentations relating to outstanding research associated with educational technology and computational psychometrics. Finalists will be selected by a panel of experts and posters will be presented at the end of the first day of the event. ACTNext is extremely excited to provide this showcase for researchers to share their best work and we look forward to your submissions. Complete presentation guidelines and submission requirements are posted below and on the registration website.
