Issues in Building an Indicator System for Mathematics and Science Education.
Stecher, Brian M.; Koretz, Daniel
In recent years, policymakers have shown renewed interest in the development of educational indicators hoping that specific quantitative indices will help them monitor the status of the educational system, understand its failures and successes, and build more effective remedies for perceived problems. This document is the final report of a study of the feasibility of developing a patchwork indicator system for science and mathematics education based on existing data sources covering achievement, secondary curriculum, and teacher workforce. This report summarizes the results of the patchwork exercise and offers recommendations for improving mathematics and science indicators. Contains 70 references. (MKR)
