The 10th Annual National Roundtable Conference on assessment and measurement issues will be held in Melbourne on 24 and 25 October 2005. It is titled ART – Assessment, Reporting + technology: System-wide Assessment and Reporting in the 21st Century
. Rising interest in the Conference coincides with a heightened interest generally in the issue of large-scale assessment and reporting, both in Australia and internationally. Benchmarks are no longer local; they are national and international. It is still an area of knowledge and experience that is growing and developing. Issues are contested. Debate is lively.
