Product Description

Literacy as Numbers: Researching the Politics and Practices of International Literary Assessment (Faculty of Education) 

Authors: Mary Hamilton, Bryan Maddox and Camilla Addey

Literacy as Numbers enquires into the politics and practices of international literacy assessment programmes, exploring how internationally comparable numbers, now so heavily relied on in national policy are produced, and how they are shaping our understanding of the meanings and purposes of literacy.

The Cambridge Education Research Series brings together leading international academics in the field and representatives from key policy and literacy assessment institutions to identify a future research agenda for the field of International Assessment Studies. Literacy as Numbers illuminates the amount of (often invisible) work that goes on behind the scenes in producing tests and policies.

Features:

  • Examines how the findings from international assessments of literacy are produced and how they are shaping our understanding of the meanings and purposes of literacy
  • Offers insider accounts of the processes of test production and implementation
  • Takes a critical approach to global educational policy and assessment, using innovative interdisciplinary theories and methods of enquiry
  • Looks at literacy across the life course and will therefore appeal to practitioners, researchers and policy makers working in all educational sectors.
