Summary

In recent years, education systems in more than 50 countries have shown an interest in obtaining information on what their students have learned as a result of their educational experiences. It seems likely that the number of countries interested in this sort of information will increase in the future. This book is intended to provide an introduction to individuals with an interest in assessing the learning outcomes of educational systems. In Chapter 1, "Nature and Uses of Educational Indicators," it considers the role of indicators in this process. A number of approaches to assessing learning outcomes in developed and developing countries are described, and systems of comparative international assessment are reviewed in chapter 2, "National and International Assessments." The question of whether existing information from public examination results can be used to provide information on learning outcomes for an education system is answered in the negative in chapter 3, "National Assessment and Public Examinations." chapter 4, "Components of a National Assessment," reviews the stages of a national assessment, and chapter 5, "Pitfalls of National Assessment: A Case Study," presents a case study of examples of poor practice in the conduct of national assessments. An appendix presents a national assessment checklist. (Contains 4 boxes, 6 tables, and 139 references.) (SLD)
