The main objective of this international journal is to advance knowledge and dissemination of research on and about evaluation, assessment and accountability:

- of all kinds (e.g. person, programme, organisation),
- on various levels (state, regional, local),
- in all fields of education (primary, secondary, higher education/tertiary, as well as non-school sector) and across all different life phases (e.g. adult education/andragogy/Human Resource Management/professional development).

The journal provides readers with an understanding of the rich contextual nature of evaluation, assessment and accountability in education. The journal is theory-oriented and methodology-based and seeks to connect research, policy making and practice.

Therefore, the journal explores and discusses:
- theories of evaluation, assessment and accountability,
- function, role, aims and purpose of evaluation, assessment and accountability,
- impact of evaluation, assessment and accountability,
- methodology, design and methods of evaluation, assessment and accountability,
- principles, standards and quality of evaluation, assessment and accountability,
- issues of planning, coordinating, conducting, reporting of evaluation, assessment and accountability.

The journal also covers the quality of different instruments or procedures or approaches which are used for evaluation, assessment and accountability.

The journal only includes research findings from evaluation, assessment and accountability, if the design or approach of it is meta-reflected in the article.

The journal publishes outstanding empirical works, peer-reviewed by eminent scholars around the world.
