Call for Papers: Special issue call for papers on assessment and self-regulated learning

Over the past few decades, educational research has made considerable progress in describing activities that promote more effective student learning. Two fields of research that have made significant contributions to this progress have been educational assessment and self-regulated learning. However, few researchers have tried to combine theories from these two fields of research or have grounded their empirical work in both camps. Despite this lack of research, the combination of these two fields holds significant potential to help us understand how to better tailor instructional practices.

The aim of this special issue is to bridge the fields of educational assessment and self-regulated learning. Thus, we welcome either theoretical or empirical work that can inform both fields and shed new light on how activities and processes in assessment and self-regulated learning may be related and influence one another.

Possible topic areas include (but are not limited to)

Assessment practices that support the development of Self Regulated Learners

Assessment for Learning and Self Regulation
