Link to Session

Some countries in Latin America have their own assessments and also participate in International assessments such as PISA and TERCE from OREALC/UNESCO. It is important to compare these assessments and verify that they are giving essentially equivalent information. The session also aims to show the importance of these assessments and their relation to the quality of education. Their existence is crucial for the development of educational goals. The session will consist of presentations by four panelists focusing on different countries in Latin America (Brazil, Chile and Peru) and providing an international comparative perspective as well as national reflections. The focus of the symposium will be on the interaction between cross country analysis and national studies. Panel members will discuss the implications of international assessments of student learning for national policy and assessments. Session participants include Claudia Victoria Matus (Agencia de Calidad de la Educacion), Ruben Klein (Fundação Cesgranrio), and Pablo Zoido (Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development).

Session participants include Kenneth M. Zeichner (University of Washington), David O. Stovall (University of Illinois at Chicago), Cynthia Cruz (University of California, Santa Cruz), and A.
