The SAGE Encyclopedia of Educational Research, Measurement, and Evaluation

Four Volume Set
Edited by:


February 2018 | 2 000 pages | SAGE Publications, Inc

In an era of curricular changes, experiments, and high-stakes testing, educational measurement and evaluation are more important than ever. In addition to expected entries covering the basics of traditional theories and methods, The SAGE Encyclopedia of Educational Research, Measurement, and Evaluation also covers important sociopolitical issues and trends influencing the future of that research and practice. Textbooks, handbooks, monographs, and other publications focus on various aspects of educational research, measurement, and evaluation, but to date, there exists no major reference guide for students new to the field. This comprehensive work fills that gap, covering traditional areas while pointing the way to future developments.

Key Features:

  • Nearly 700 signed entries are contained in an authoritative work spanning four volumes and available in electronic and/or print formats.
  • Although organized A-to-Z, front matter includes a Reader’s Guide grouping entries thematically to help students interested in a specific aspect of education research, measurement, and evaluation to more easily locate directly related entries.
  • Back matter includes a Chronology of the development of the field; a Resource Guide to classic books, journals, and associations; and a detailed Index.
  • Entries conclude with Further Readings and cross-references to related entries.
  • The Index, Reader’s Guide themes, and cross-references combine to provide a robust search-and-browse in the electronic version.
