Learning Achievement

Assessment is a tool for standardization, one of the measurements for equality in education. It is, however, more complicated when it comes to equity. Various national and international tests have been used since long ago, and more widely applied since the beginning of Education for All. Most national examinations focus on children’s academic knowledge.


Some standardized tests like the Programme for International Student Assessment (PISA) and Trends in International Mathematics and Science Study (TIMSS) are globally accepted, as they test both student’s individual knowledge and survey students’ contexts for deeper analysis.

Try reading the recent PISA methodology, results and reports here.

Recently, there are attempts to introduce innovative assessment approaches to solve the issues of learning turning into studying for the tests, and to be able to better reflect the reality. The approaches do not only assess children, but also teachers and education systems.

In case you want to read more, here’s one of the sources.

This chapter takes you to the fundamental models of assessment, such as students’ academic performance assessment, learning outcome evaluation, and standardized tests.
