Track 13. Evaluation in education and guidance


In the previous editions we have presented the advances of the studies in Educational Assessment conducted by our research team belonging to the IUCE at the University of Salamanca, as well as those of other national teams specialised in educational assessment and guidance, such as the Universities of Cádiz, Málaga, Córdoba, Oviedo, Burgos, etc. In this edition we would like to open up to the participation of international teams, both European and American, who will contribute with interesting advances in educational fields as relevant as the assessment of programmes, schools and institutions, or the impact of educational actions on learning.

Nowadays, educational evaluation constitutes a key element to improve the quality of any programme or, in its broadest sense, the quality of the education system as a whole. In this track we seek to share methodologies and research results about diverse assessment objects, whose aim is to improve the education system, both at University and non-university levels. On the other hand, this track will present some research experiences in the fields of evaluation and educational guidance.


This track aims to present studies and to foster a discussion among the scientific community on the following topics related to the methodology and results of research in educational assessment:

  • Assessment methodology of digital skills
  • Assessment methodology of mathematics skills
  • e-assessment to e-learning
  • Evaluation of the educational system
  • Large-scale assessments
  • Value-added and quality in education
  • Innovation in e-assessment
  • International models in program evaluation in education
  • Feedback and feedforward in evaluation
  • Culturally responsive assessment
