From the Back Cover
Educational Evaluation, Assessment and Monitoring" presents methodological development in educational measurement, monitoring on the basis of indicator systems, and review-type approaches such as inspection and school self-evaluation. The lucid presentation of these topics is combined with substantive knowledge of educational effectiveness. In this way the book is not just a guide on how to assess, monitor and evaluate in education, but also on what to measure, describe and assess.;The systemic approach situates these evaluative processes "in context". The core processes that are the subject matter of this book are embedded in processes of governance and management and in structural configurations at various levels of the education system. This "contextualization" is used to indicate how "educational monitoring and evaluation" should be fitted to various contexts, and how to deal with limiting political, institutional and organizational constraints.;The book is aimed at graduate students, practising evaluators, educational research and development personnel, school managers, school inspectors, education consultants and education planning officers at various administrative levels.
