Use them as a valid evidence for decision- making

Allow for informed benchmarking

Improve the overall quality of the education system

To know the factors that most affect the students performance in the country vis a vis other countries

specific uses of the assessment information
Specific uses of the Assessment information
  • 1. Knowing the learning levels of students
    • Knowing whether the Honduran students learning

outcomes are improving and why or why not?

    • Knowing if Honduran students are acquiring the knowledge skills as identified in the national education strategy
  • 2. Monitoring the impact of reform
    • Used as baselines to test the education reform programs
    • Diagnosis of the education system
  • 3. Providing feedback to schools and teachers to improve pedagogy and learning (teacher training and curriculum reform)

challenges in the participation and use of international achievement results
Challenges in the participation and use of international achievement results

The horse racing exploited negatively by the media

The measuring scale is too high for our students

Lack of financial and human resources

Limitations in the generalizability of results

Constant changes of key personnel in the ministry of education

Lack of specific policies and mechanism to use the results at the local or school level

Very few other Latin American countries are participating in the IEA studies

conclusion
CONCLUSION

In Conclusion: There is a lot of data obtained through the national and international large scale studies in Honduras. However, their use is still very limited for policy and decision making we are also a long way for using them to reward high performing schools/teachers or impose sanctions on low performing schools/teachers.
