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.

Special Acknowledgements

Since the start of the Co-operation Agreement in 2008 to improve the quality of education, the OECD and the government of Mexico have co-operated closely to support current and future education reform efforts. The work has focused on effective policy design and implementation, evaluation and assessment, teacher incentives, teacher policy and school performance. This report presents the findings and main considerations for Mexico to support reform in these areas. As part of this work, the OECD has mobilised its existing stock of knowledge and expertise, reviewed relevant international practice on these issues, and participated in consultations with national and international experts, as well as with Mexican stakeholders through technical meetings, international workshops and review visits.
