Collaborative scholarship in assessment, evaluation, and knowledge mobilization

Our Collaborative Approach

Collaboration drives our inquiry approach. The AEG regularly engages in collaborative research, evaluation, and consulting activities. Our aim is to support educational organizations in generating essential information to guide evidence-based decision-making that support learning. Working collaboratively with our partners throughout the inquiry process, we ensure that research meets needs and yields productive outcomes.

  • Program evaluations and reviews across sectors (education, health, business, etc.) and contexts (nationally and internationally)
  • Professional development for teachers and system leaders in assessment, evaluation, and knowledge mobilization
  • Test design, development, and validation
