Trust and Accountability to Build More Equal Education Systems - Reflections from a Study in South Africa

A conversation with Dr. Melanie Ehren, Professor of Educational Accountability and Improvement at University College London's (UCL) Institute of Education and Head of the UCL Research Centre for Educational Evaluation and Accountability.

Accountability and trust are key variables in the improvement of any education system and are often positioned as opposites or substitutes, saying that control destroys trust or that control is unnecessary when you trust someone. Others, however, argue that control can build trust when it locks people or organizations into a collaborative relationship, for example. Trust would also allow for more flexible monitoring, instead of using highly standardized and scripted protocols to measure school quality; such flexibility enables schools to take risks and innovate.

Dr. Melanie Ehren will share preliminary findings from a study in South Africa, presenting examples of how external control in a setting of distrust can undermine agency and improvement and has created large inequity in the system.

NOV 07 - Ecology of Education featuring Dr. William Dardick
Special Event

Marvin Center Room 405, 800 21st Street, NW, Washington, DC 20052

Exploring Issues when Generating Data for Simulation Studies in Education

Dr. William Dardick considers issues of generating data in simulation studies that occur in education. In education, real-world problems involve the need to generate data for multivariate and/or multilevel models: students are nested in classrooms with teachers, classrooms in schools, schools in districts and all with many outcomes we desire to study. A proposed method is highlighted based on path tracing logic by Dardick and Harring (2012; in preparation) which provides a solution for data generating parameters regardless of the number of dependent variables and independent variables in a specified model.
