Pollard, Joyce S.
Insights on Educational Policy and Practice, n15 Nov 1989
Growing demands for accountability and useful measurement of educational outcomes have contributed to increasing efforts to develop or refine more valid and reliable methods of educational assessment. More states are designing high-quality indicator systems for evaluation at the school, district, and state levels. Seven recommendations derived from research and practice for developing practical indicator systems are presented in this educational policy bulletin, with a focus on defining objectives and reporting data. The challenge is to develop indicator systems that are useful to and used by educational stakeholders. (LMI)
