Establishing a Framework for Evaluation and Teacher Incentives

Considerations for Mexico

image of Establishing a Framework for Evaluation and Teacher Incentives

Countries with underperforming education systems are recognising that effective reform is vital. But what types of programmes are likely to be effective, and how can they be implemented given local norms and conditions? This report focuses on evaluation, assessment and teacher incentives and attempts to answer these important questions for Mexico and, by extension, other OECD member and partner countries.

A public policy framework for education reform is first presented, followed by specifics on evaluation systems, student assessment instruments, school value-added considerations, and teacher evaluation and incentive plans. Dozens of policy findings and recommendations follow each of the six core chapters, including six key policy dimensions of effective education reform and an 11-step plan for improving teacher evaluation and incentives.

This report presents the main findings and recommendations of the Steering Group on Evaluation and Teacher Incentive Policies resulting from the Co-operation Agreement between the government of Mexico, represented by SEP (Secretaría de Educación Pública), and the OECD. The report forms part of a larger body of work: three related publications,1 expert papers, workshops and technical meetings with officials from SEP and relevant stakeholders. Much of the work was conducted jointly with SEP officials and on several occasions, the Education Minister was personally involved in meetings and workshops.
