Graham, Linda J.; Tancredi, Haley; Willis, Jill; McGraw, Kelli – Australian Educational Researcher, 2018

Harris, Lois R.; Brown, Gavin T. L.; Dargusch, Joanne – Australian Educational Researcher, 2018
Within self-regulated learning, learners exercise agency by setting targets, formatively monitoring progress, and evaluating results in ways which inform their own goal attainment. However, in real-world classroom situations, assessment processes can elicit behaviours that are more ego-protective than growth-oriented. Resistance to teacher…

Rodgers, Carol – Australian Educational Researcher, 2018
In this article, the author argues the imperative of critical dialogue between learners and teachers on learners' experiences in the classroom.

School partnerships support the effective provision of Vocational Education and Training (VET) in the senior years of secondary schooling, to a varying degree, in most OECD nations.
