Mission Statement

Assessment and evaluation constitute some of the major challenges of education nowadays. This is because it squares the desire for improved constructive learning against the demand for institutional reliability and accountability. SIG 1 is interested in addressing the need for pedagogically driven models of assessment and electronic assessment that inform policy, support teachers in their work and that allow pupils and students to take more control of their own learning and become more reflective. We are particularly interested in research from kindergarten to university level, which include the following topics:

  • Theoretical influences on assessment and evaluation
  • Feedback in assessment
  • Lifelong learning and assessment
  • Socially responsible and effective electronic assessment
  • Co-constructing knowledge with collaborative assessment
  • New directions for electronic assessment
  • Assessment and learning analytics
  • Large-scale assessment
