The Educational Testing Service Invitational Conference of 1985 had as its theme “The Redesign of Testing for the 21st Century.” It has been a little over 25 years since the conference proceedings were published, and it is amazing to see that the future still looks a lot like it did then: cognitive-based assessment, online assessment, widespread use of computer-adaptive testing, universal access to technology, and instantaneous reporting of test results. So many wonderful things, still within our view but just beyond our grasp!
