dc.description.abstractNeither impact nor peer review no ‘addressing national research priorities’ are without problems as appropriate criteria for quality assessment in the field of education, but each is being raised in current debates about quality research, and each is indicative of some competing agendas that thread through quality research re-assessments in Australia. This paper discusses some conflicting agendas and trajectories within recent Australian research policy and funding mechanisms for education, as well as the broader context of the status of education research and how this impacts on debates and strategies with regard to quality. It is argued that the education research community do need to develop appropriate quality indicators in the field of education, but to do this effectively requires attention also to the contextual pragmatics and politics of how such assessments will be enacted. More broadly it is also important that the current focus on measures of quality assessment be re-coupled with more attention to contexts of production of education research and the issue of how quality research can be developed.
