Each issue of Assessment Insider includes a varied combination of articles written by experts in their fields, a selection of case studies submitted by Certified Educational Assessors (CEA) graduates as their major assessment piece for CEA Certification, a celebration of new CEA graduates; as well as user generated hints, tips and life experiences.
