One thing you should know…our Conference is very different from other assessment conferences. During the three-day event, you will have the opportunity to hear from leading experts in the fields of student learning assessment whose presentations focus on trends in engagement and assessment with take-home strategies that support institutions’ continuous improvement efforts. You will see case studies in action that describe approaches for systematizing assessment institution wide and across multiple campuses, along with strategies for development of student academic identity.

Of course, we always plan time for interaction with our presenters, as well as collaborative events with your peers and opportunities to learn about the latest learning engagement and assessment technology. In addition, we have multiple hands-on workshops in rubric design, student learning, and preparing faculty for assessment. When you attend our Conference, you will find that the core of our programming is and has always been underscored by LiveText’s founding pillar:  COLLABORATION

I hope you will consider joining us this summer in Chicago. To learn more, please visit
