OECD Reviews of Evaluation and Assessment in Education: Student Assessment in Turkey
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
provide, from an international perspective, an independent analysis of major issues
facing evaluation and assessment policy to identify improvements that can be made
to enhance the quality, equity and efficiency of school education.
Turkey’s education system stands out internationally as a success story. In recent
decades, participation has been vastly expanded, becoming universal at lower levels
of schooling and outperforming other middle-income countries in upper secondary education.
However, the education system is also marked by disparities, with only around half
of 15-year olds acquiring the essential competencies they need for life and work.
This review, developed in co operation with UNICEF, suggests how student assessment
can be used more effectively to better support all students to do well. It provides
recommendations for enhancing teachers’ classroom assessments, assessing a broader
range of skills through national examinations and using the new national assessment
to support improvements in learning and teachers’ assessment practice.
