OECD Reviews of Evaluation and Assessment in Education: Serbia
How can assessment and evaluation policies work together more effectively to improve
student outcomes in primary and secondary schools? The country reports in this series
analyse major issues facing evaluation and assessment policy to identify improvements
that can be made to enhance the quality, equity and efficiency of school education.
Serbia’s education system performs well compared to other countries in the Western
Balkans. In recent years, there have been improvements in access to education and
Serbia has undertaken major institutional reforms to improve teaching and learning.
However, a large share of students in Serbia continue to leave school without mastering
basic competencies and efforts to achieve educational excellence continue to be jeopardised
by limited institutional capacity and low levels of public spending on education.
This review, developed in co-operation with UNICEF, provides Serbia with recommendations
to help strengthen its evaluation and assessment system to focus on support for student
learning. It will be of interest to Serbia, as well as other countries looking to
make more effective use of their evaluation and assessment system to improve quality
and equity, and result in better outcomes for all students.
