Performance Information and Educational Policy Making

  • Åge Johnsen
Part of the Governance and Public Management Series book series (GPM)


We do not know a great deal about the way performance information is used in public policy in modern democracies (Pollitt, 2006b). Nonetheless, there lies a great potential for decision makers to use performance information to assess and enhance efficiency and effectiveness, as well as to provide feedback to stakeholders in the political system about the need for policy innovation. The tools that generate performance information include the use of performance indicators (PIs), performance audits and evaluations. This chapter focuses on the use of performance indicators as a means of informing public policy.
