From Rome with Love: International Perspectives and Experiences with Accountability

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

The Improving Education through Accountability and Evaluation: Lessons from Around the World conference that I attended in Rome in early October 2012 released their papers and presentations about accountability experiences and perspectives from around the world. The conference was sponsored by the Istituto Nazionale per la Valutazione del Sistema Educativo di Istruzione e Formazione (INVALSI); the University of Maryland School of Public Policy (UMD); the Association for Public Policy Analysis and Management (APPAM); the Ministero dell’ Istruzione dell’ Università e Ricerca; and the European Commission Directorate-General of Employment, Social Affairs in Rome, Italy. I discussed the At-Risk Student Averse research published in Journal of Educational Administration. See the powerpoint slides here. (I integrated a few travel photos into the slideshow just for fun).
