The Origins and Development of the European Community Educational Indicators Project.
West, Anne; And Others
This paper outlines the origins and development of the European Community Educational Indicators Project that began in 1992. It reviews past literature relating to the various definitions of an indicator that have been used and the conceptual models that have been adopted. A description of the objectives of the project is followed by an analysis of the information requirements of the European Commission in the areas of education and training. The relationship between the Organisation for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD) Indicators of Education Systems (INES) Project and the Community Educational Indicators Project is examined, with reference to work in the field of educational indicators in selected member states of the European Union (EU). The paper also identifies the categories that provide the overarching framework for the proposed EU indicators. The appendix contains the proposed new indicators. (Contains 23 references.) (LMI)
