ASSESS 2015: Data Mining for Educational Assessment and Feedback

ICDM 2015, Atlanta City, NJ, November 13, 2015


After organizing a very successful workshop last year at KDD, we are pleased to announce the second workshop on Data Mining for Educational Assessment and Feedback to be held at the International Conference on Data Mining 2015. Last year's workshop had 6 paper presentations and 10 poster presentations. The workshop brought together a total of 80 participants including education psychologists, computer scientists and practitioners under one roof and led to a thoughtful discussion. We hope to have a larger reach-out and participation this year! Click here to go through the accepted papers and talk slides from last year.

Call for papers

We invite submission of papers describing innovative research on all aspects of assessment of educational achievement and providing feedback. Position papers and papers inducing discussion are strongly encouraged, but should base themselves on fresh insight and/or new data. Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

- Automated and semi-automated assessments of open-responses

- Assessment by crowdsourcing and peer-grading

- Automatic feedback generation

- Automatic problem (item) generation/design, calibration, modeling

- Assessment design, test blue-print, rubric design, validity and reliability

- Test integrity, equity, proctoring and high-stake testing

- Non-cognitive assessments in personality, behavior, motivation, etc.

- New areas: gamification, simulation based assessments, etc.

- Insights derived by large scale assessment data towards learning, recruitment, performance prediction, etc.

More information on the scope of the workshop can be read about on the workshop webpage.

Papers submitted should be original work and different from papers that have been previously published. Submission to the workshop does not preclude submission to other venues in future or in parallel. The authors may publish the work submitted here or its extensions at other avenues. Accepted papers shall be included in the proceedings of ICDM 2015 and will be provided a speaking slot at the workshop. Others would be invited to present their work as posters.
