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.
