CMEC: Assessment Matters: What’s in it for me?
From the conclusion, page 8: “National and international assessments have been gaining increasing importance in the last few decades. They have become an indispensable tool for improvement, accountability, educational planning, and policy development. Data obtained from large-scale assessments provide a clear picture of the extent to which learning outcomes are being achieved as well as what factors can influence them. School leaders, teachers, policy-makers, and parents can use this information to identify those areas of their education systems, as well as their home environments, that function well and those that need improvement.”
Note that any day now the PISA 2015 results will be made available.
