Aims and Scope
This handbook aims to bring together chapters by distinguished authors from around the world. It provides a comprehensive up-to-date compilation of important issues of and around educational assessment and evaluation and includes key researchers and practitioners as authors with rigorously reviewed top-quality contributions. The book takes the scope of providing readers with an understanding of the rich contextual nature of evaluation and assessment in education. The volume is theory-oriented and methodology-based and seeks to bridge the gap between theory, research and practice. The target group is thus both researchers and practitioners.
Therefore, the handbook explores and discusses:
- theories of evaluation and assessment,
- function, role, aims and purpose of evaluation and assessment,
- impact of evaluation and assessment,
- methodology, design and methods of evaluation and assessment,
- principles, standards and quality of evaluation and assessment,
- issues of planning, coordinating, conducting, reporting of evaluation and assessment
