Measuring school quality in the United States: past, present, future

6 July 2017

Hosted by the school of Education and Social Work's research networks for Comparative and International Education (CoInEd); and School and Teacher Education Policy (STEP).


Today, parents and policymakers in the US can access school- and district-level data in historically unprecedented quantities. The recent My School website in Australia reflects a similar movement towards the provision of increased information about education. Yet available information largely consists of student-standardised test scores, which offer a limited picture of school performance and correlate strongly with student socioeconomic status. As a result, such data produce a distorted picture of school quality that triggered a host of unintended consequences. This talk will discuss an effort to produce a broader and more diverse range of information about schools: a model that might be adopted in the US, as well as in contexts such as Australia and beyond.
