Education in developing countries is one of the major challenges to the efforts of the expert community to international development assistance in recent decades
Over the past 15 years considerable experience is accumulated in the implementation of international initiatives to increase access to basic education. However, despite significant progress in achieving the Millennium development Goals between 2000 and 2015, only provision of the access to universal education was insufficient: many of the primary school graduates still do not demonstrate the basic skills of reading, writing and accounts, which, in turn, requires clarification of goals and targets to achieve universal quality education.
In September 2015 at the UN Summit on sustainable development with the participation of Russia there was adopted an expanded Agenda till 2030, which included 17 goals in the field of sustainable development, and formed a program that will guide global and national initiatives for development in next 15 years
A new goal for education – “to ensure inclusive and equitable quality education, the possibility of learning throughout life for all” received not only a new scale, but also a new dimension.
In this regard, acquire high relevance for the development of approaches in the field of education quality assessment conducted by the Center is a timely and relevant contribution of the Russian expert community to the achievement of the sustainable development Goals of the UN.
Не меньшее значение работы Центра имеют и в контексте внутрироссийской повестки дня, которая определяет оценку качества образования в качестве ключевого элемента принятия эффективных управленческих решений.
The importance of work of the Center in the context of the domestic agenda that defines the quality assessment of education as a key element of effective decision making.
Development and improvement of the national system of education quality assessment in Russia is a prerequisite for the transition from the achievement of quantitative indicators to the principle “management by results”, which is necessary not only to establish a system of indicators, but also to have an agreed measurement procedures, to be able to interpret the results, to have an objective basis for making management decisions.
