A recent article in La Nación discusses Argentina’s ban on publishing the results of student achievement tests, its implications for education quality, and contrasts Argentina’s policy with steps by other countries, such as Brazil and Mexico, to make test scores public school by school.

It cites Alejandro Ganimian (doctoral student at Harvard Graduate School of Education and former PREAL staff member) regarding the importance of making test results public: “The principal way in which citizens learn how their schools are doing is through student and teacher evaluations, and these evaluations are crucial in generating consensus on education reform.”
