Gaertner, Holger; Brunner, Martin – Educational Assessment, Evaluation and Accountability, 2018

Simms, Michele; George, Beena – Educational Assessment, Evaluation and Accountability, 2014
Assessment is a key process in assuring quality education but how is it linked to the scholarship of teaching and learning (SoTL)? How can we join teaching and learning to the assessment process rather than view it as a stand-alone component in course and/or program development? This paper explores the relationship between assessment and the SoTL…

Ehren, M. C. M.; Hatch, T. – Educational Assessment, Evaluation and Accountability, 2013
Many studies point to potential unintended consequences of accountability systems such as when schools narrow their teaching to fixate on tested subjects. As a result, some states and districts in the USA have complemented the federal test-based accountability system with additional measures of educational practices to hold schools accountable on…
