We are pleased that the Assessment Conference has attracted over 400 local and international academics and was successfully completed on 15th June 2005 in Hong Kong, a dynamic and modern city in the Special Administrative Region of the People's Republic of China.

This three-day conference featured a diversity of perspectives: that of frontline teachers, educationalists, researchers, and school administrators. Over 150 presentations which were accepted after reviewing 300 proposals, were available for the choice of all participants. These were in the form of paper presentations, roundtable discussions, and poster displays. It is delighted that we have received very positive feedback on all its aspects, particularly the paper presentations, the professionalism and helpfulness of the student ambassadors, and the overall organisation. If you miss the chance to attend this event, you will be interested to look at the video clippings of the Keynote Presentations and Website Launch of the Assessment Resource Centre (ARC).

Furthermore, it is encouraging that after the conference, we received 91 full papers and more than 40 papers have been accepted for inclusion in our Conference Publication after review. We believe that the publication would be good sharing of educational experience for everyone.

On behalf of the Conference Organising Committee, I would like to extend our deep gratitude to all those who have submitted their proposals and, to all conference delegates for their participation in this event. We hope this gathering of people, ideas, and experience will help to advance the use of assessment in educational settings
