Measuring productivity in education sector

It is widely accepted that productivity is a major driver of economic growth. In the education sector, productivity is often measured by inputs such as the number of teachers and students, or by outputs such as the number of graduates. However, these measures do not take into account the quality of the education being provided.

A recent study by the Centre for Analysis of education (COAE) International sought to address this issue by developing a methodology to measure the productivity of education systems. The study found that, on average, OECD countries could increase their output of graduates by 23% if they improved their productivity to the level of the best-performing country.

There are a number of factors that contribute to productivity in education, including the quality of teaching, the use of technology, and the management of resources. However, the most important factor is the quality of the students themselves.

There are a number of ways to measure the quality of students, but the most common approach is to use test scores. The problem with this approach is that it only measures a narrow range of skills and knowledge.

A more comprehensive approach is to use the PISA test, which measures a range of skills including reading, mathematics, and science. The PISA test is used by education systems around the world to compare the performance of their students.

The COAE study used data from the PISA test to measure the productivity of education systems. The study found that, on average, OECD countries could increase their output of graduates by 23% if they improved their productivity to the level of the best-performing country.
