Professor Jannette Elwood – Dean of Graduate Studies (AHSS) and Professor of Education in the School of Social Sciences, Education and Social Work – has been elected the next President of the Association of Educational Assessment (AEA) – Europe.
Speaking about her appointment, Professor Elwood said: "I am honoured to have been elected by my peers to the role of President. I have seen the Association grow from a small group of enthusiastic research collaborators who had the vision for such an organisation into a viable, well-respected Association that is at the forefront of educational assessment research, policy and practice across Europe.
"I look forward to the challenges that being President of such an organisation will bring but also to the great work and extensive impact that such a talented group of European colleagues can do and make together – especially in the turbulent educational, social and political policy contexts which we find ourselves in."
"All of us at Queen's are pleased and proud that Professor Elwood has been appointed as President of the Association. Her research on assessment and examinations has been recognised locally, nationally and internationally, so she will bring a wealth of knowledge and expertise to her new role.
"Jannette's work is a fine example of our commitment to globally excellent research, with significant local impact, that makes a huge difference to society. This appointment is a fitting accolade from her peers, and an important statement on her standing and reputation in the academic community. She is an extremely worthy recipient and I know she will bring great leadership and expertise to the role."
