Impressive advancements in artificial intelligence, machine learning, natural language processing, and similar technologies offer exciting opportunities to positively affect our day-to-day lives. However, prior applications of such tools (for example, facial recognition) provide cautionary tales regarding the limitations of this technology and the risks of unintentional outcomes. In the assessment industry, we need to strike a careful balance between incorporating these tools to innovate our field and improve measurement while vetting the technology in ways that protect our stakeholders. This is particularly important in our field today, where the fairness and utility of measurement has already been questioned. For example, consider the recent increase in testing-optional and test-blind college admissions policies. How do we incorporate technological advances and innovate our field without the missteps experienced in other industries? The esteemed panel gathered for this discussion will provide insights based on their extensive experience in testing across a variety of markets. This webinar provides an opportunity for experts in our field to collaborate and contribute to a shared interest of innovation with integrity.
