The vision of the Association for Educational Assessment in Africa (AEAA) is "Harmonization of Educational Assessment on the African continent".
"The Association for Educational Assessment in Africa (AEAA) is a non-profit making organization established to promote co-operation amongst examining and assessment bodies in Africa".
The existence of AEAA dates back to 1982 when it was born out of what was known as the sub-regional Conference for Heads of Institutions responsible for Educational Assessment in Eastern and Southern Africa (AEBESA) whose founding members were Kenya, Uganda, Tanzania, Botswana, Lesotho and Malawi. Many other African ' Countries later joined the Association.
In 1992, at Arusha, Tanzania the AEBESA metamorphosed into the AEAA drawing its membership from across the continent of Africa.
