National Assessment of Basic Competencies in Hungary

In 2001 the Hungarian Ministry of Education initiated a large-scale study to assess school effectiveness in preparing students to the requirements of the labor market and lifelong learning. The National Assessment of Basic Competencies (National ABC) measures the abilities of students in reading and mathematical literacy in grades 6, 8 and 10 in every school. It also involves a short Student Background Questionnaire and a School Questionnaire to map the background characteristics of students and schools. The results are reported to schools and authorities on the basis of a sample of twenty students per school and these reports help schools to get an objective description of their achievements. My paper and presentation will focus on the key properties of the study. To familiarize the reader with the National ABC I am going to shortly describe the framework of the cognitive domains and the defined proficiency scales, the methodological properties and the summarized basic results of the assessment.
