Dublín City University & Prometric
PhD Scholarship in Assessment at the Dublin City University

Dublin City University is a research-intensive, globally engaged, dynamic institution that is distinguished by both the quality and impact of its graduates and its focus on the translation of knowledge into societal and economic benefits. The Institute of Education (IoE) at DCU is the largest body of educational expertise and the only faculty of education in Ireland. The Centre for Assessment Research, Policy and Practice in Education (CARPE) is a core element of DCU’s IoE. CARPE is supported by Prometric, a leading, worldwide provider of technology-enabled testing and assessment services with a significant operations base in Ireland.

CARPE is now offering a three year fully-funded PhD Scholarship. This represents a unique opportunity to design and implement an innovative research project in the area of assessment, under the supervision of the Prometric Chair, Prof. Ernesto Panadero. The successful candidate will become a core member of the established research team at CARPE and will also have the opportunity to connect and collaborate with international researchers in the field.

In a time marked by increasing globalization, technology infusion and social change, both the education sector and the professional testing industry are facing significant challenges in terms of how best to design and deliver authentic, relevant, and fair assessments. It is, accordingly, a demanding, but exciting time to be a scholar in this field.

Application Deadline: 17th of November 2023


If you are interested come and talk to me during the conference (Ernesto Panadero).
