Proposals are now being accepted for the 2021 CREATE Conference. CREATE welcomes proposals related to teaching effectiveness, assessment, and evaluation.

Our 2021 conference theme is 

CREATE-ing Conversations for Fair and Sound Assessment and Evaluation

The deadline for proposals is June 15, 2021, but we will begin with rolling approvals notifying authors of proposal status, acceptance, or rejection prior to that date for earlier submissions.

Annually since 1991, the CREATE Conference has brought together prominent educators, scholars, and practitioners from preschool, kindergarten through 12th-grade practitioners (PK-12), and higher education. CREATE is a nonprofit organization dedicated to the improvement of assessment and evaluation in PK-12 and higher education. CREATE members have a common mission of connecting theory to practice to facilitate learning through educational assessment and teaching effectiveness.

Conference proposals should include a 50-word abstract for the conference program and a 200- to 350-word proposal. CREATE welcomes proposals representing PK-12 higher education faculty, doctoral students, researchers, policymakers, evaluators, and other voices. Below are the strands for this year’s conferences. 

Proposals accepted on research, policy, practice, or theory related to:

  • Fair Accountability: using fair and credible approaches to judge student learning outcomes and teaching effectiveness

  • Assessment Today: collecting evidence of student learning, current issues in assessment, or changes over time leading to current issues in classroom or large-scale assessment

  • Evaluation Today: making judgments about learning, evaluating programs, and/or personnel evaluation 

  • Leading with Data: leading school or district level data teams, including setting up teams, establishing teams, and/or using assessment data within the team

  • Interprofessional Practice: collaborating to inform assessment, evaluation, and/or instructional effectiveness. The collaboration may be within a designated group (practitioners, researchers, policymakers, general education professionals, special education professionals) or may represent collaboration across groups (general education-special education professionals; practitioners-researchers; etc.)
