Education at a Glance: OECD Indicators = Regards sur l'education: Les indicateurs de l'OCDE.
Organisation for Economic Cooperation and Development, Paris (France). Centre for Educational Research and Innovation.
This report presents a preliminary set of international education indicators developed by the Centre for Educational Research and Innovation (CERI) of the Organisation for Economic Co-Operation and Development (OECD). The set of indicators is designed to meet the growing demands by national authorities and the education community for comparative information on the organization and operation of their educational systems. These indicators are targeted to a broad audience and are selective and intended to be policy-relevant. In addition, they are standardized in a way that makes them comparable among the countries of the OECD. The framework consists of three clusters of education indicators, offering information on: (1) the demographic, economic, and social contexts of education systems; (2) features of education systems; and (3) the outcomes of education. No indicators have yet been described for many aspects of the framework; this report presents only those indicators recognized as of 1988. A full set of international education indicators will be forthcoming. Included are 2 illustrative figures and 38 tables of study data. Annexes contain notes to the tables, technical notes, a glossary, and a list of project participants. The text is presented in parallel English and French versions. (SLD)
