About Us

Collaborative scholarship in assessment, evaluation, and knowledge mobilization

Our Commitment to Education

Established in 2002, the Assessment and Evaluation Group (AEG) leverages a collaborative approach to scholarship to engage in innovative research with the goal of contributing to new knowledge in assessment, evaluation, and knowledge mobilization. Our research, services, and educational programming are all directed at promoting learning and improving educational systems through rigours research and effective community engagement.  Situated at Queen’s University’s Faculty of Education, the AEG supports leading undergraduate and graduate education in assessment, evaluation, measurement, and knowledge translation. The AEG operates from the premise that high quality assessment and evaluation are the foundation for meaningful educational change.


We Value Diversity and Inclusivity

We acknowledge that educational assessment has been a historical and current source of systemic discrimination, exclusion and a barrier to social progression for many. We also recognize that, when used appropriately and sensitively, assessment has the power to support equitable access to education and propel learning forward for diverse students. The AEG recognizes that equity is at the heart of educational assessment. Our work strives to promote fairness and equity in assessment, measurement, program evaluation, and knowledge mobilization. We are committed to creating a welcoming, safe and inclusive environment that supports learning, teaching, and research for all. Our commitment to equity and inclusivity is embodied through the following actions:

  • Investigate, publish, and disseminate new conceptions of assessment theory and practice that support diverse representations of knowledge and experiences of learning.

  • Support students in pursuing personally driven inquiries related to assessment, evaluation, measurement, and knowledge mobilization.

  • Ensure that our research reflects and represents experiences of diverse students and teachers.

  • Support educational opportunities for students and visiting researchers from diverse backgrounds.

  • Ground research and educational inquiries in reimagining assessment and evaluation to empower student learning and agency.

  • Engage in international collaborations to broaden perspectives and connect experiences of assessment from diverse backgrounds.

  • Maintain diverse representation across faculty and students.
