Biography

Shilpi Banerjee is a part of the Institute of Assessment and Accreditation(IAA) team associated with the School of Continuing Education and University Resource centre(SCE-URC).

She is involved in the design and review of large scale tests used for assessing elementary grades students learning outcomes and in analysing students’ test results to understand how well they have attained these outcomes. She has conducted several training workshops for engineering college faculties and school teachers on learning outcomes, assessment, course design, item bank creation and tutoring.

She has a Bachelor’s degree from Nagpur University, MTech from National Institute of Technology, Bhopal and PhD in Educational Assessment from International Institute of Information Technology (IIIT), Bangalore.
