Mesure et évaluation en éducation

Managing editor(s): Carla Barroso da Costa (Directrice) / Editor(s): Sawsen Lakhal (Rédactrice canadienne), Nathalie Younès (Rédactrice européenne)



The Mesure et évaluation en éducation journal is a communication and exchange instrument intended for individuals interested in measurement, assessment and evaluation in education from a variety of perspectives, and who wish to be informed of the latest research and reflections on this topic. In the journal, researchers, practitioners and individuals who chose measurement, assessment and evaluation as a specialized field of study or area for reflection share their ideas, opinions and work results for the benefit of their colleagues and other education stakeholders.

Texts published in the journal are divided in two categories: articles and critical reviews. Texts from the first category are submitted to evaluators for review. Articles may come in various forms: (a) theoretical analyses or reflections, book reviews, literature reviews or “meta-analyses”; (b) didactic texts, for example on a concept or method in measurement, assessment and evaluation; (c) experimental work (creation, adaptation, validation) reviews or research on measurement, assessment and evaluation practices. Texts from the second category, although not submitted to evaluators, must still go through a review process. Texts from this category might be critical reviews of books, software, instruments or any other type of production related to measurement, assessment and evaluation.

The journal is listed in the European Reference Index for the Humanities (ERIH) with an INT-2 (International 2) rank. This category includes international publications with “significant visibility.” The journal is also recognized by the High Council for Evaluation of Research and Higher Education (Hcéres, SHS list)

Editorial policy and ethics

Text submission and review process

Texts are submitted for review by three experts acting as evaluators, based on the blind peer review principle. Anonymity of both the authors and evaluators is guaranteed. Feedback and comments are provided to authors anonymously.

Texts must be submitted in a word processor format compatible with WORD and must be double-spaced, with a Times New Roman font, 12 points, with page dimensions of 21.5 x 28.5 cm or 21.0 x 29.5 cm, and with no more than 50,000 characters excluding spaces or 8500 words including notes and references.

The first page of the text must contain the title and a French and English summary (100 to 150 words each) preceded by keywords (also in French and English) that can serve as descriptors. Each author must provide an ORCid code (

Notes can be added (with moderation) at the end of the text. Figures, graphics, formulas or diagrams (created with software other than WORD) must be sent to us in a modifiable high definition PDF format that includes fonts and images. As for pictures and images, they must have a 300 dpi (dots per inch) resolution, be the same size as they appear in the publication and saved under a .JPG format (quality: high). All of these graphical elements must be provided in a separate file from the Word document. Authors should avoid inserting screenshots or elements from websites (only 72 dpi). References must be listed following the Publication Manual of the American Psychological Association’s latest version of the style guide. It is important to ensure that nothing in the text enables evaluators to identify the author(s). The submitted text must be sent to the editor-in-chief:

NOTE: Where there may be a conflict of interest, the text will be evaluated by the sister association’s editor (Canada or Europe). Authors must include the following information in their email: name, organization they belong to, address, and phone number (including fax and email, if possible). When there is more than one author, the same information is required for each one of them, in an order that will be kept for the eventual publication of the article. It is important to ensure that the submitted text has not been published elsewhere.

Once the text is accepted for publication in the Mesure et évaluation en éducation journal, authors must fill the provided form to this end. Authors will also have to surrender their rights to the journal. Authors must not publish a version of their article in an institutional repository without the consent of the journal’s editor-in-chief.


Anti-Plagiarism Policy

The Mesure et évaluation en éducation journal, as a scholarly journal, is strongly opposed to plagiarism in any form. By plagiarism, we mean the practice of not giving credit to someone else’s work. Self-plagiarism is also prohibited. Where an instance of plagiarism is confirmed, the author(s) will face the following consequences, depending on the type of offence:


- correction of the article without a warning;

- correction of the article with a warning;

- rejection of the article;

- rejection of the article with a three-year prohibition to submit texts to the journal.
