Evaluation of Educational Programmes in Turkey.
Yasar, Sefik
The educational system of Turkey and educational evaluation efforts are described. In Turkey, the educational system includes optional preschool education, compulsory elementary education through age 14, secondary education for 3 or 4 years more (3 for university preparation, 4 for vocational education), and higher education. All of the preschool, elementary, and secondary programs are centrally prepared by the Ministry of Education (MOE), while higher education is cooperatively prepared by the Higher Educational Council and specialists at the universities. Reflective, formative, and summative evaluations are conducted. Most educational evaluation in Turkey, and especially most formative evaluation, is done by academic researchers, and findings of these evaluations are not used as much as they could be because of lack of cooperation with the MOE and educational systems. To solve the problem of evaluation utilization in Turkey, more cooperation between the MOE and academic researchers will be necessary. (Contains 12 references.) (SLD)
