From everyone at CARPE.


CARPE, based at the Institute of Education, St Patrick’s Campus, Drumcondra, is supported by a grant from Prometric to Dublin City University. The centre was established to enhance the practice of assessment across all levels of the educational system, from early childhood to fourth level and beyond.  Work at CARPE is focused on conducting high quality research and professional development in assessment, as well as establishing global networks and contributing to assessment policy making.  If you are an educator, test developer, policy-maker, or researcher interested in assessment please feel free to contact us.
