Bagolin, Izete, and Flavio Comim (2007). "Quality Indicators for Educational Capabilities" Paper presented at the 4th annual conference of the HDCA, 18-20 September 2007, New York, USA.
Here, we put forward a simple methodology for producing quality indicators for educational capabilities and provide an illustration of a survey carried out with more than 8.000 children in Brazil during 2006 where the proposed methodology has been applied. We conclude by making a case for the development of ‘quantitative assessments of quality’. Without them, a considerable gap between the capability approach and practical measures for assessing education, within a human development perspective, should remain.
