Texas Assessment Conference

Now in its 30th year, the Texas Assessment Conference remains the only statewide conference especially dedicated to providing the latest information regarding assessment, testing, and accountability in education–elementary, secondary, and postsecondary. Attendees receive the most current information from state agencies and policymakers, as well as benefit from sharing of best implementation practices in schools, districts, colleges, and universities. The 2016 conference promises to provide critical information for student and institutional success.


The Texas Association of Collegiate Testing Personnel (TACTP) was founded in 1988. TACTP is a nonprofit organization for individuals who have an interest in or responsibility for administration of educational and psychological testing and assessment programs at Texas colleges and universities. In February 2000, TACTP began holding its annual conference in conjunction with the Annual Texas Assessment Conference. This arrangement benefits both the TACTP members and the Texas Assessment Conference attendees.
