2. Evaluation of Educational Systems
Just as important as the quantifiable information provided by these evaluations, is the interpretation and application of results, for results may be used as diagnostic tools, methods of allocating resources, or assessments of teaching practices. This sphere of activity will therefore: a) elaborate means of collecting information concerning evaluation techniques; b) perform comparative analyses of evaluation methods, and c) publish generalizable information about assessment practices. Such activities shall encourage increased application of reliable measures of educational effectiveness.
- Support research and policy studies investigating the appropriateness and the pitfalls of the different evaluation techniques in distinct jurisdictional and/or cultural settings.
- Conduct seminars in the development of appropriate evaluation measures for diverse policy purposes related to educational reform.
- Provide technical support for publication and electronic dissemination of information related to educational evaluation methods.
