Evaluation And Policymaking In Education by Florencia Carlino

Centralized public assessment has been at the heart of educational reforms all over the world, bringing up all sorts of social, political and professional struggles. This trend represents part of the last wave of neoliberal educational reforms. These reforms have overemphasized new forms of accountability and control of school life. This book analyzes an Argentine evaluation program of elementary students' performance, which is alternative to this global trend. The program intends to solve important dilemmas of evaluation policy: equity, participation, trustworthiness,
comparability, and authenticity of the information.
It was designed to democratize educational policymaking and to resist the effects of a surrounding context of neoliberal educational reforms. The analysis aims at capturing the perspectives about collaborative leadership in education held by contemporary Argentine educational leaders. This book can be particularly useful to educators, researchers, and policymakers.
