Technology-enhanced assessments for selection and development have increasingly flourished over the past several decades. Sophisticated assessment programs that weren’t possible even a few years ago can now be assembled and launched on a global scale to measure almost any attribute in any language with greater realism, efficiency, and precision than ever before. As a new generation of technology-driven applications comes of age, a host of new issues and opportunities have emerged which require assessment professionals to respond with an informed perspective that balances business’s return-on-investment priorities with appropriate professional and scientific rigor.

The field of assessment is at a critical stage in its evolution. The intersection of new technologies, globalization, and market shifts among assessment providers have created significant tensions for both science and practice that require ongoing vigilance and creativity.Few forums exist to integrate the advancements in practice fueled by these trends and the streams of research that might inform their course of development. This is why SIOP is hosting the 2019 leading edge consortium (LEC):
