Assuring Quality in Education: Policies and Approaches to School Evaluation in Europe

Source: European Commission

From Main Findings:

Improving the quality of education and training is a key concern in the policy debate on education both at national and EU level. The need for policies and systems aimed at ensuring and enhancing the quality of education has been widely acknowledged at European level. In 2014, the Council invited the European Commission to strengthen mutual learning, and support Member States in developing their quality assurance arrangements. This report offers a country-specific and comparative review of school evaluation across Europe, in order to promote the sharing of knowledge about approaches to enhance the quality of education systems. It deals with the evaluation of schools providing compulsory fulltime education in all EU Member States, as well as Iceland, Norway, the former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia, and Turkey.
