The National Conference on Student Assessment (NCSA) is the premiere forum for assessment practitioners to discuss what is happening in the real world of educational assessment - what's new, what's going on at the state and federal level, what works and what does not.
The NCSA is centered on the idea that each student - regardless of his or her circumstance - should be prepared for life, meaningful work, and citizenship. Through transforming student assessment systems, NCSA's is dedicated to creating a personalized system of education that engages and motivates students to succeed in a world that is increasingly diverse, globalized, and technology-rich.
Since 1971, NCSA has been the trusted forum for assessment practitioners to learn and reflect upon current and emerging trends in education and educational assessments. The conference annually draws 800 to 1000 participants including federal, state, and district agencies, test publishers, educational consulting companies, university faculty, and organizations supporting technology, education, and business.
