OECD Reviews of Evaluation and Assessment in Education: Bosnia and Herzegovina
Bosnia and Herzegovina (BiH) has high levels of educational attainment and performs
similar to other Western Balkan economies in international assessments of student
learning, like the Programme for International Student Assessment (PISA). However,
large shares of students in BiH continue to leave school without mastering basic competencies
and there are signs of inequities in the learning outcomes. BiH also has limited comparable
data on teaching and learning and faces considerable capacity and resource constraints.
Considering collaboration across the country’s different levels of government is limited,
these factors prevent the development and implementation of sustainable education
reforms. This review explores some of the contextual features of education systems
in BiH and highlights how a stronger evaluation and assessment frameworks can help
achieve higher learning standards for all students.
