The Center for Educational Testing and Evaluation will hold the “Conference on Statistical Detection of Potential Test Fraud” on May 23 and 24 at the University of Kansas, Lawrence campus. Though test fraud is a topic of growing public concern, this is the first ever scholarly conference focusing on statistical approaches for identifying such problems. Conference topics include current statistical methods used by testing organizations to identify potential test fraud, and research into new statistical approaches.
Additionally, with the increased use of technology-based testing, additional data are available for test fraud identification, and the conference includes sessions on this emerging area. Conference papers are grouped into six thematic sessions with a discussant for each session.
The event is sponsored by Caveon Test Security, ACT, Inc., College Board, Data Recognition Corporation, Educational Testing Service, Graduate Management Admission Council, Law School Admission Council, Pearson, and the National Center for the Improvement of Educational Assessment.
