Educational Policy Evaluation through International Comparative Assessments
2014, 246 pages, paperback, 34,90 €, ISBN 978-3-8309-3091-4
This book is a collection of essays and studies by leading experts in international comparative education who demonstrate how international comparative assessments can be used to evaluate educational policies. The volume is organized into two parts that address, first, theoretical foundations and methodological developments in the field of international assessments, and, second, innovative substantive studies that utilize international data for policy evaluation studies. The intention of this book is to revisit the idea of ‘using the world as an educational laboratory’, both to inform policy and to facilitate theory development.
