At present, the education sector is characterized by an oversized network of increasingly small schools and a high number of poorly paid teachers and non-teaching staff. A recent Ministry of Education sponsored feasibility study concluded that up to half of Moldova s rural schools may need to be reorganized in the next three to five years in order to counteract the sharp population declines that have taken place over the last 20 years. It is important to underline that the restructuring of the school network is not a goal in itself. The main purpose of the reforms will be to improve quality of education through consolidation of schools and better utilization of resources, human and physical. The results of the evaluation of the pilots (first two-years of implementation for which the data is available) have been presented and discussed with the Ministry of Education during the Bank missions in May and September 2012. This paper is organized as follows: section two explains sector context and the core of the per student financing reforms. Section three highlights key milestones in per student financing reform in Moldova. Section four reviews first outcomes of per-student finance in two pilots Riscani and Causeni. Finally...

Thesis (Ph.D.) - Indiana University, School of Education, 2011; Master's students' perceptions of and approaches to enacting student affairs values are not examined in the literature. Because students will be professionals in student affairs, it is important they can explain how they came to learn and demonstrate values core to this work. This study addressed four aspects of socialization to student affairs' values: graduate students' perceptions of essential student affairs values, the extent to which perceptions aligned with literature on student affairs' values (Young, 2003), how perceptions differ across functional areas, and socialization agents and processes that influenced views of values and their enactment. Through a qualitative study combining aspects of phenomenology and narrative inquiry, impressions about student affairs values development were collected from 17 master's students. Students were second-semester, second-year participants in one of three distinct student affairs graduate preparation programs. Between February and April 2010, two separate interviews were conducted with each student. From transcriptions, narratives were developed to tell the story from each interview. Participants reviewed each narrative. The second interview included individualized questions based on participants' first-interview and narrative review. Through analysis...

Student assessment plays a key role in improving education. However, many countries do not disseminate and make effective use of their student assessment information. This paper discusses Chile's effective use of its assessment information and draws lessons for other countries. A key lesson from the Chilean experience is that effective use of assessment information is a challenging task that takes time, effort, and resources. Another lesson is that the task requires leadership, long term planning, and consensus building. Countries able to learn from Chile's lessons will be in a better position to make effective use of their student assessments and, ultimately, to contribute to education quality and learning.

In 2009, Tajikistan joined the Russia Education Aid for Development (READ) trust fund program, the goal of which is to help countries improve their capacity to design, carry out, analyze, and use assessments for improved student learning. As part of the READ trust fund program, and in order to gain a better understanding of the strengths and weaknesses of its existing assessment system, Tajikistan participated in a formal exercise to benchmark its student assessment system under The World Bank's Systems Approach for Better Education Results (SABER) program. SABER is an evidence-based program to help countries systematically examine and strengthen the performance of different aspects of their education systems. SABER-student assessment is a component of the SABER program that focuses specifically on benchmarking student assessment policies and systems. The goal of SABER-student assessment is to promote stronger assessment systems that contribute to improved education quality and learning for all. The importance of assessment is linked to its role in: providing information on levels of student learning and achievement in the system; monitoring trends in education quality over time; supporting educators and students with real-time information to improve teaching and learning; and holding stakeholders accountable for results. The SABER-student assessment framework is built on the available evidence base for what an effective assessment system looks like. The framework provides guidance on how countries can build more effective student assessment systems. The framework is structured around two main dimensions of assessment systems: the types/purposes of assessment activities and the quality of those activities. Assessment systems tend to be comprised of three main types of assessment activities...

The motivation for this study is to contribute to the preparation of the new Palestinian Education Strategy by shedding light on the school and classroom level factors that influence student learning, and to identify good practices that can be generalized from high-performing classrooms to those that need improvement. While most Palestinian children are in school, performance on assessments indicates that many of them are not learning as much as they could. This represents not only inefficiency in the use of public resources, but also a lost opportunity for individual students and the society as a whole. The current study was carried out by the Assessment and Evaluation Department (AED) of the Palestinian Ministry of Education and Higher Education (MoEHE) with technical and financial support from the World Bank. The analysis presented in this paper was prepared by the World Bank team as a complement to a previous paper prepared by a team of experts from AED. For the purposes of this study, schools were classified by student performance in TIMSS 2011 and the 2012 Palestinian national exams. Classroom and school-based tools were then used to gather information from both high and low-performing schools. A total of 122 public...

The following report is the first of a two-stage video study to examine teaching practices and activities in Indonesian classrooms. The first stage is linked to results of the 2007 Trends in International Mathematics and Science Study (TIMSS) where 100 of the 150 classes that participated in the TIMSS examination also participated in this additional video study component. The second stage will also involve 100 classes that will participate in the 2011 exam. The second phase will follow the same methodology, allowing for comparison across years, but will also involve more in-depth analysis of the links between teaching practices and student outcomes and how teaching practices are influenced by teachers' belief systems and subject content knowledge. Indonesia has been a committed participant in the TIMSS, Program for International Student Assessment (PISA) and the Progress in International Reading Literacy Study (PIRLS) international standardized student examinations for many years and is one of the few non-OECD (Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development) countries to participate so fully. Indonesian student performance in these examinations has been relatively low...

Student assessment has been increasingly recognized as playing a key role in monitoring and improving student learning and achievement levels. This case study discusses the important steps that Jordan has taken to strengthen its student assessment system and ensure that the information gathered from classroom assessments, examinations, and large-scale assessment activities supports student learning. Countries seeking to strengthen the utilization and dissemination of student assessment data can extract the following lessons from Jordan's experience: they should (i) set clear objectives for their assessment system, based on a well-defined vision of what is being assessed and why; (ii) entrust an external entity with managing system-level assessments in order to ensure impartial evaluation of the strengths and weaknesses of the education system; and (iii) introduce change gradually, coupled with adequate training on new assessment strategies and methods.
