I recently wrote an article which explored the concept of measuring education reform by developing an appropriate performance framework to analyse outcomes. Originally, I intended to write this in two parts, but instead I have integrated both sections into a single paper.

An education system which is flexible, responsive and adaptable  during economic recovery is desirable – and we must be able to test this, challenge it and support continuous improvement across all of its component parts.

Although measuring performance within individual services, schools and agencies is important, there is an argument to mark progress across the entire portfolio of integrated services at key stages of a young person’s life.

Given this, any performance framework must underpin a statistical infrastructure that can provide quality information that supports cross-policy development, performance measurement and analysis, and appropriate monitoring at both local and national level.
