THE MISSION AND RESPONSIBILITIES OF THE DANISH EVALUATION INSTITUTE


The Danish Evaluation Institute was established with the mis­sion of carrying out systematic evaluations of primary and lower-secondary education, upper-secondary education, higher education and adult education and continuing training. The mis­sion is specified in the Lov om Danmarks Evalueringsinstitut (The Danish Evaluation Institute Act, the so-called EVA Act).

The broad mission should be reconsidered


In the opinion of the panel, there are several reasons to recon­sider the present broad mission of EVA. The Danish prioritisa­tions with regard to education are different today from when EVA was established. Changes of management and monito­ring systems within various sectors of education have been im­plemented and further modifications are in progress.

The role of EVA as an evaluator of educational quality ap­pears unclear at the present moment, and the independence which is to characterise the work of EVA according to the EVA Act is limited in several respects.

The panel of assessors recommends that the present broad scope of EVA’s mission, i.e. the responsibility for evaluation within all educational sectors, be reconsidered.
