Robinson, Viviane; Timperley, Helen
Peabody Journal of Education, v75 n4 p66-89 2000
Discusses conditions under which educational accountability might prompt academic improvement, critiquing the logic linking the two; identifying processes influencing the validity of accountability judgment, acceptance of judgment, and probability that it motivates improvement; and analyzing 12 New Zealand primary schools' methods of informing parents of parents of students' educational achievement (which did not motivate teachers or parents to improve).
