British Journal of Educational Technology: Call for Papers


Title of special section: Learning Analytics and Assessment


This special issue seeks to promote research and practice that looks at the intersection of learning analytics and assessment. We invite submissions that report on analytic approaches that are well-aligned to educational assessment research and that improve reliability and validity of data collection and analysis in learning analytics. The submissions will also look into the ways how learning analytics can contribute to the future developments in assessment for both summative and formative purposes, uses of learning analytics to promote fair, sustainable, and developmental assessment, and examine practices for the use of learning analytics to assure assessment trustworthiness with the particular attention to the socio-technical nature of potential challenges.


We welcome empirical, conceptual and theoretical papers that report on research spanning the fields of learning analytics and assessment. The papers should include at least one of the following topics:

  1. Role of learning analytic approaches to formative and summative assessment
  2. Crossovers of practices in assessment validity and reliability with learning analytics
  3. Fairness and sustainability in assessment with learning analytics
  4. Learning analytic approaches for trustworthiness of assessment
  5. Developmental assessment and learning analytics
  6. Trace-based assessment to support learning processes and outcomes
  7. New theoretical frameworks that describe theoretical constructs (and their relationships) in learning analytics and assessment
  8. Juxtaposing of learning analytics and high-stakes/standardized testing
  9. Critical perspectives on the role of learning analytics in assessment
