Three different session formats are available for submission: 1-hr standard presentations, poster sessions, and lightning talks.

These sessions operate concurrent with other sessions. Presenters should plan for a 45 minute presentation and 15 minutes for Q and A. If chosen, presenters will be provided with a projector and computer.
  • Poster sessions could address any of the following topics (a) a description of an innovative assessment program, (b) an analysis of a practical problem-solving effort, or (c) results from a research or assessment project. Posters should be approximately 48x36in.
  • Lightning talks are short, 10 minutes presentations that are intended to tell a story about your data.

The deadline to submit a proposal is March 30, 2020.
