OECD Reviews of Evaluation and Assessment in Education: Student Assessment in Turkey

image of OECD Reviews of Evaluation and Assessment in Education: Student Assessment in Turkey

How can assessment and evaluation policies work together more effectively to improve student outcomes in primary and secondary schools? The country reports in this series provide, from an international perspective, an independent analysis of major issues facing evaluation and assessment policy to identify improvements that can be made to enhance the quality, equity and efficiency of school education.

Turkey’s education system stands out internationally as a success story. In recent decades, participation has been vastly expanded, becoming universal at lower levels of schooling and outperforming other middle-income countries in upper secondary education. However, the education system is also marked by disparities, with only around half of 15-year olds acquiring the essential competencies they need for life and work.

This review, developed in co operation with UNICEF, suggests how student assessment can be used more effectively to better support all students to do well. It provides recommendations for enhancing teachers’ classroom assessments, assessing a broader range of skills through national examinations and using the new national assessment to support improvements in learning and teachers’ assessment practice.

Foreword

Turkey has made remarkable progress in expanding access to education and improving quality over the past two decades. Yet, as the country’s young people near the end of schooling, nearly half lack basic competencies for life and work. Aware of the need to ensure that all children have a fair chance to do well, the Ministry of National Education is reforming education to better meet the individual needs of each student.
