Dear Colleagues,

We are delighted to announce that the 8th Conference of the International Association for Computerized Adaptive Testing (IACAT) will be hosted by the Goethe University Frankfurt, Germany from Sunday, the 10th of October to Tuesday, the 12th of October, 2021.

With the conference motto “Enhancing testing and assessment in the digital age with computerized adaptive testing”, IACAT 2021 strives to connect research & development on IRT-based computerized adaptive testing (having a background in Psychometrics and Educational Measurement) and adaptive measurement and testing driven by artificial intelligence (having a background in computer science).

In addition to keynotes given by several of the most distinguished researchers in the field, there will be a wealth of individual oral presentations, symposia, workshops, and innovative interactive sessions on cutting-edge CAT research and applications. A number of awards and student grants will be available. More details about the conference can be found on the conference website:

We cordially invite you to block the date of the conference. The official Call for Papers will follow later this year.



Andreas Frey

(Chair Organizing Committee)
