Perspectives on Education Quality, Education Indicators and Benchmarking
Scheerens, Jaap
European Educational Research Journal, v3 n1 p115-138 2004
This paper provides some conceptualisation on educational quality, which could be the basis for comparison with available indicator sets. In a second section standards and benchmarks and methods to define these are discussed. A third section covers the theme of the use and usefulness of education indicators and results from educational monitoring and evaluation in general. These conceptual contributions are used to further focus the research questions for the BEQUAD study. Next steps will be the operationalisation of the key aspects of the questions into data collection instruments and checklists and to plan the data collection. (Contains 2 tables and 7 figures.)
