Call for Papers: Teleology and Evolution Education

Evolution: Education and Outreach invites original contributions exploring all aspects of teleological reasoning and teleological language pertinent to the teaching and learning of evolution. The scope of papers to be included in this special issue will range from theoretical reflections on the role that teleology should play in evolution education to empirical studies addressing teleology-related aspects of teaching and learning evolution.

Call for Papers: Evolution Assessment

The assessment of evolutionary understanding and acceptance play a central role in many evidence-based educational pursuits. Many questions in the growing field of evolution education research rely on measures drawn from assessment tools. The U.S. National Research Council (2001, 2014) has emphasized the complexity of drawing valid inferences from assessment tasks, the need for continuing evaluation of assessment tools in diverse contexts, and the paucity of formative and next-generation assessments capable of measuring complex practices and learning progressions. This new special issue welcomes research exploring any aspect of evolution assessment.
