Ongoing Analyses of Student Assessment Data as a Management Tool in Education
D. Zupanc presented the method of the ongoing analyses of student assessment data – ALA Tool, where the analyses of achievements in national examinations with the summative assessment function are complemented with the formative function. Professional monitoring system provides schools confidential information on their performance and function as a basis for raising effectiveness and quality management. Student assessment should be closely related to the curriculum and based on the achieved standards. Based on the studies of the international knowledge measurement (PISA) it was established that curriculum-based external examination has a very positive effect on the quality of outcomes. The curriculumbased exist exams has a positive effect on the equity as well, as low SES students benefit more than high SES students. It was also established that upon the implementation of school autonomy by its staff the effects on the outcomes were positive. High(er) autonomy 'goes hand in hand' with high(er) accountability for the quality of work in schools. The ongoing analyses of student assessment data are a basis for professional discussions, analyses and interpretations, and, based on the gathered data and conclusions, for action-taking and improvements within the PDCA cyclic model as a quality management tool and effectiveness in education.
