Since the first standardised testing system was introduced in China in the first decade of the 7th century, test developers have welcomed innovation in test design and delivery.

The personalisation of learning and assessment was, until very recently, viewed as an unattainable goal. While all modern educational testing systems are based on the original Chinese approach, the advances made in the field of technology in recent years has seen rapid changes into the way we design, deliver and score tests. This panel will explore how emerging technologies are driving change across our education systems and how future systems might evolve as the availability of technology becomes even more widespread.

  • Professor Barry O'Sullivan, Head of Assessment Research & Development, English & Exams, British Council
  • Professor Antony Kunnan, Faculty of Arts and Humanities, University of Macau
  • Dr Xie Qin, Assistant Professor, Department of Linguistics and Modern Studies, The Education University of Hong Kong
