SIG 23 - Educational Evaluation, Accountability and School Improvement (merged with SIG 18)
As from October 2020, this SIG has merged with SIG 18 to form a new SIG "Educational Effectiveness and Improvement".
This SIG brings together an array of theoretical and empirical research into external and internal evaluation and accountability of schools and teachers and their impact on teaching, learning and achievement of the students. We are interested in addressing questions on:
- theoretical modelling the relationship between educational evaluation, accountability and school improvement
- the design of external evaluation and accountability systems of schools and teachers (e.g. concerning reliability and validity), their relation to internal evaluation systems and the impact of such systems on equal opportunities in education, school improvement, teaching and learning in the classroom and achievement of the students.
- empirical methods to study these questions
