About this Research Topic
The aim of this Research Topic is therefore to bring different perspectives on transparency in assessment together, in order to further our understanding of how students are influenced by the use of explicit assessment criteria. A deeper understanding of the influence of explicit assessment criteria on students’ understanding of criteria, motivation, and learning is equally imperative for future research and educational practice, both of which need to go beyond individual opinions and convictions.
For this Research Topic we welcome both conceptual and empirical research on transparency in assessment, and we encourage research from a range of contexts, perspectives, and methodological approaches. In particular we are interested in manuscripts that may further our understanding of the relationship between explicit assessment criteria and students’ performance, motivation, and learning strategies.
