Asia ATP's in-person conference took place October 23-24, 2023 in Sanya, Hainan, China: Stepping Into the Future! The Next Growth of Asian Testing and Education

The A-ATP conference provided an exceptional and valuable opportunity for professionals, educators, employers, researchers, test sponsors, program managers, clinicians, and business leaders in the assessment industry, to convene on a common platform for learning, presenting ideas, and networking.

The main objectives of last year’s conference were:

  • Promoting the quality of testing programs through introducing products, theories, best practices, industry trends to each market in Asia
  • Lowering the barriers for local practitioners to gain global access to quality test contents, technologies and partners/clients via establishing their direct professional network.

The 2023 A-ATP Conference was held at the Crowne Plaza Sanya City Center in Hainan Province*, China.

This year's Keynote address "Digital-First is the Future of Assessment" was presented by Duolingo Principle Assessment Scientist Yigal Attali. Digital-first assessments are assessments designed to be delivered online, at scale, anytime and anywhere in the world, with a rapid turn-around of scoring and an online smooth sharing process with the receiving institutions. The advantages of digital-first assessments have manifested themselves during the pandemic, when traditional group assessments in brick-and-mortar test centers became impractical.
