The Assessment Tool of Status Information of Secondary School (on the Example of Schools of Moscow)
Education Administration
(Master’s programme)
There is currently no common approach to the secondary schools informatization assessment. Educational organizations' administrations need an assessment tool for evaluating the current school informatization state and for doing so on the basis of a realistic further development program, focused on the tasks set out in the second generation Federal State Educational Standards (FSES).

The aim of the thesis is to develop a tool for assessing the secondary schools informatization requirements that focus on achievement of the objectives, relevant to the stage of education development.

The first chapter of the thesis discusses the education informatization concept dynamics in the global and Russian contexts and relevant educational policies. An analysis of domestic and foreign informatization assessment tools led up to the conclusion that the national assessment tools are generally based on the number of school computers, the Internet availability and only partially on the qualitative changes taking place at school. It is also necessary to notice that the assessment tools used in our country do not determine the role that the school plays in shaping the educational outcomes of students which is distinctly observed with the introduction of the FSES.

In the second chapter we conducted a content analysis of the FSES in terms of the informatization requirements for schools, compared with the existing domestic informatization assessment tools.

The FSES requirements use possibility for students' educational outcomes as a benchmark to evaluate the information of the school are discussed with the regard of the international PISA study in 2012, ICILS of 2013 and the study of Internet Development Fund in 2013 materials.

As the result of the informatization assessment tools comparative analysis, we suggested approaches and principles that can be used for the design of a new assessment tool, relevant for the Russian context.
