LRDG Seminar

Date: 6 June 2006 Time: 1.00 pm

The challenges of consistency: National systems for assessment and accountability in adult literacy educationAlisa Belzer, Rutgers and Ralf St. ClairAssessment has been an increasingly important area of interest for several decades now. We look at the way assessment flows into accountability in national systems. If assessment is considered as a way to transmit information between individual learners and the educational system, our interest here is how that system receives the information and what it does with it. Our discussion will look briefly at the background and key features of national systems generally before moving into three case studies (US, England, and Scotland) of assessment and accountability systems, and will be followed by analysis of what can be drawn from the experiences in these three national settings.
