Abstract

Literacy as Numbers encourages critical debate, presenting insider accounts of literacy assessments and their impact upon education.Literacy as Numbers enquires into the politics and practices of international literacy assessment programmes, exploring how internationally comparable numbers, now so heavily relied on in national policy are produced, and how they are shaping our understanding of the meanings and purposes of literacy.The Cambridge Education Research Series brings together leading international academics in the field and representatives from key policy and literacy assessment institutions to identify a future research agenda for the field of International Assessment Studies. Literacy as Numbers illuminates the amount of (often invisible) work that goes on behind the scenes in producing tests and policies.
