Avaliando mudancas educacionais: uma perspectiva estatistica

Harvey Goldstein

Resumo


O artigo explora questoes que aparecem ao se avaliar iniciativas de politicas educacionais. O artigo da exemplos de como resultados de pesquisas devem ser avaliados e tira licoes de como formuladores de politicas podem interagir efetivamente com pesquisadores. O artigo argumenta que enquanto o uso que o governo faz da evidencia da pesquisa e frequentemente seletivo e preocupado com seus interesses de curto prazo, uma visao mais geral do processo de pesquisa e mais produtivo e benefico. As questoes do tamanho da turma, ranqueamento de escolas e os efeitos do dever de casa sao estudadas em detalhe e a natureza frequentemente provisoria da evidencia da pesquisa e enfatizada assim como a incerteza em volta dos resultados de estudos individuais.
