An upcoming IIEP International Policy Forum in Manila organized with the Department of Education in the Philippines will look at Using Open School Data to Improve Transparency and Accountability in Education.
Open school data can foster accountability and combat corruption in education, but only when it is used effectively and any malpractice is addressed with clear consequence. Researchers and national policy-makers attending an International Policy Forum in Manila, organized by the UNESCO International Institute for Educational Planning (IIEP-UNESCO) and the Department of Education in the Philippines, underscored this as they discussed open data initiatives from around the world.
This case study compares the design and implementation of two major initiatives implemented in India – the school report cards developed under the Unified District Information System for Education (U-DISE), and the Annual Status of Education Report (ASER) programme.
This case study focuses on the My School website, the platform for the country’s school report cards, which is managed by the Australian Curriculum Assessment and Reporting Authority (ACARA), the Australian national reporting authority.
