Welcome to ILACE 2023

Advancing Assessment in Practice


The International Language Assessment Conference in Egypt (ILACE) is proudly offered through a partnership between the British Council and the American University in Cairo. ILACE 2023 is taking place from September 1-2, 2023.

ILACE each year welcomes hundreds of teachers, assessment specialists, education reformers and researchers from across the Middle East North Africa, and globally, to engage in scholarly discussion around language assessment. ILACE is a joint collaboration between the British Council and the American University in Cairo. ILACE is a two day  face-to-face event of professional development to the worldwide ELT community. 

Hot issues such as using technology in assessment, high-stakes exams, test designs, and inclusive assessments are gaining more and more interest every day. ILACE 2023 is keen to shine a light on these issues during this year’s conference. ELT practitioners and assessment specialists will meet to discuss and share their expertise in various critical areas: test development and design, online assessment, assessment literacy, artificial intelligence in language assessment, alternative assessment, and learning-oriented assessment. Therefore, teacher professional development, including conferences, must hinge more and more on assessment awareness and expertise to promote and maintain quality learning and teach as expected by all stakeholders involved, including learners, their current and future employers, and others in society.

ILACE 2023 seeks to address these areas by inviting proposals that help us bridge the gap between theory and practice, supporting teachers in their assessment literacy and ultimately their ability to enact meaningful, appropriate, and accurate classroom assessments that can help students obtain quality learning.

The conference organizers invite proposal submissions from all educators who are interested in language assessment.
