Evidence-Based Policies on Mathematics Education in Europe

Halime Ozturk


Evidence-based polices have important place for the educational development. Monitoring and reporting activities through national and international reports and surveys provide data sources for a comparable education in Europe and make contribution to a more effective policy making process. It is seen that only almost half of the European countries carry out such surveys and reports by the year of 2010/2011 within the context of teaching methods and low achievement in mathematics education. In order to reach to the common educational objectives, systematic data sources are required both in national and international level.
