With a record number of delegates attending the conference the Pearson stand was a hive of activity. Whether visitors wanted to find out about our new products, talk about industry challenges and how Pearson can help overcome these or just join us for a coffee and a chat, we were happy to see so many teachers, industry leaders and authors.
Our theme this year was 'Improving Learning Outcomes' and the importance of testing students' progress. This was reflected in our signature event 'Test, Teach, Test,'
Authors Antonia Clare and David Hill joined Pearson's Ian Wood and Mike Mayor to discuss the limitations teachers and students currently face with understanding English proficiency levels and how we can better measure progress.

We also used the signature event to introduce Progress, the first institutionally administered, fully automated online progress test that accurately measures student progress in English, highlighting strengths and weaknesses to inform teaching.

Pearson recently conducted efficacy research to show quantitative and qualitative results and observations from English classes using MyEnglishLab around the world. Over 400 of these reports were taken by delegates during IATEFL.
