Ways of efficient use of data produced by integrated assessment system for individual, institutional and nationwide decision-making
The State Examination Center (SEC) of the Azerbaijan Republic manages complex assessment system including secondary and high school final examinations, university entrance, as well as selection of candidates for civil service.
While in early stages of its operations the only purpose of the centralized examination system was ensuring impartial selection of students for universities, later it enhanced its technical and research capacity transforming into huge data production platform for individual and institutional decision-making. The platform has been designed to align requirements of all stakeholders including candidates and institutions.
Flexibility, technology-based design and scientific approach enables the system to act as a facilitator and from time to time even a driving force of positive changes and innovations aimed at individual and institutional capacity building.
Network of experts and educators managed by the SEC develops various assessment tools, administers assessment procedures in line with specific requirements of education institutions, government agencies and individuals. Education institutions and government agencies can use the produced data to revise their strategies and develop human resources, while individuals can take advantage of it for education and career planning.
In 2016 SEC started to administer the selection of candidates to civil service, which opens a new perspective for validating assessment on higher education level and reconciling the university education with real career requirements.
