Reliable measurement data is essential for developing sound policies to support innovation to enhance learning outcomes, equity or cost-efficiency in education. The OECD/CERI Innovation Strategy for Education and Training project aims to develop a questionnaire for a survey on innovation in education and conduct related pilot studies in co-operation with interested countries. The survey instrument aims to be flexible enough to be used by interested countries, regions and cities on a voluntary basis.
To this end, the 2nd OECD/CERI Workshop on Measuring Innovation in Education, held in Paris on 11 June 2010, assembled a small group of OECD country representatives and experts to develop a strategy and a statistical instrument for measuring innovation in education. An international survey on innovation in education would:
Focus on change in specific practices implemented at the school and classroom levels;
Include contextual factors to detect drivers and barriers for innovation in education;
Link changes to subjective and, when possible, objective perception of their impact;
Cover innovation not only in teaching, but also in administration and external relations;
Be complementary to other ongoing measurement initiatives.
