A QUESTION OF VALIDITY IN THE USE OF LARGE SCALE INTERNATIONAL ASSESSMENT STUDIES TO GAUGE THE NATIONAL LEARNING LEVELS

This paper researches the legitimacy of the results obtained by the large scale international assessment studies. Over the years there has been a tremendous growth in the national and international large scale assessment studies, but it is felt that there is a lack of validation about the value of the information that these assessments provide, which is coupled with the insufficiency in the skills required to carry out a technically sound assessment at the grass root levels, especially in the developing countries. Even when countries conduct a national achievement survey or participate in an international one, the information yielded by these, often do not provide the complete/real picture of the learning levels. In addition to the large-scale surveys, there is a need for other studies, such as ethnographic, small-scale focused group, case studies, and other qualitative researches that allows for better understanding of the learning levels of the students by contextualizing it.
