Criteria for Submission
Articles will be judged on the degree to which authors formulate their ideas and present evidence to support them. Reviewers will apply the following general criteria to all submissions:
- The extent to which the work describes an innovative assessment approach or practice;
- The extent to which the work might be replicable by other institutions;
- The extent to which the work raises significant questions or issues related to assessment practices;
- The extent to which the work has demonstrated a positive effect on student learning or development.
Submission Guidelines for the e-Journal
Format, Length, and Documentation
Articles in the Journal should typically be between 3,000 to 6,000 words (or approximately 8–16 double-spaced pages), though there are no rigid minima or maxima. Authors should use APA format for documentation. Files in Word format (.docx) are preferred, though .pdf files will also be reviewed. Authors may include hyperlinks and other appropriate electronic forms of conveying information.
Articles should be submitted as an attachment to an e-mail addressed to firstname.lastname@example.org. After an initial screening by the editors, submitted work will be read blind by outside reviewers, so it is essential that all identifiers be removed from the document and be included only in the e-mail.
Review of Articles
Each reviewer will attach questions/comments and share one of the following judgments:
- Accept with minor revision
- Accept with major revision; encourage revision and invite resubmission
