Teacher union resistance to the onslaught of standardized evaluation in Argentina

  • Miguel Duhalde


In Argentina, since the 1980s and with increased emphasis during the decade of the 90s, standardized evaluation took hold in order to measure students’ learning in accordance with the “suggestions” of international agencies.

From the beginning, the Confederation of Argentine Education Workers (CTERA) raised questions around this way of conceiving evaluation, pointing out that it reduces the education process to a simple “measurement of results”, placing the full responsibility on students, teachers and schools.
