Wood, Bronwyn E. – British Journal of Sociology of Education, 2014
A priority toward creating "active" citizens has been a feature of curricula reforms in many income-rich nations in recent years.

Informed by an amalgam of notions drawn from constructivist, socio-cultural, metacognitive and self-regulation theory, the discourse created to describe assessment to enhance learning has gone through a number of iterations or discursive shifts. As a result, the current discourse is both ambitious and complex with the roles and responsibilities…
