Assessment and Evaluation Group (AEG) faculty members and graduate students engage in independent and collaborative research, program reviews and consulting. ​The Group operates in many educational contexts, with a wide variety of clients, using multiple and mixed methods of inquiry. It operates from the premise that high quality measurement, assessment and evaluation is a foundation for meaningful evidence-informed decision-making.

AEG works on an internship model of scholarly development. Projects are conducted with the goal of contributing to and disseminating new knowledge while building the practical and research capacities of graduate students. All our inquiry is directed at promoting learning and improving educational programs.

AEG offers courses at the undergraduate (e.g., Assessment & Evaluation module of PROF 150/155, EDST 408, EDST 409 and graduate levels, including a Ph.D. in Education program with a concentration in Assessment and Evaluation.

AEG provides services in the following areas:

  • Assessment Practices: build instruments; analyze test data; advise schools and districts on assessment programs;
  • Classroom Practices: support collaborative professional learning; integrate assessment into teaching and learning;
  • Program Evaluation: program development; program improvement; program review.

AEG reports to the Advisory Research Council of Queen's University.

AEG Roundtables

The collaborative, relaxed format of the AEG Roundtables is for sharing experiences, giving tips, and providing guidance to aid in the growth and development of graduate students. Discussion leaders are either senior graduate students or faculty members, depending on the topic for a given week.
