Events

The NILOA Event Calendar provides a central location for information on assessment-related events. Inclusion of an event in the calendar is not an endorsement nor does it signal NILOA-sponsorship. The calendar instead serves as a mechanism to support the ongoing professional development of those interested in assessment by listing relevant and timely events.
