Introductory remarks for [British Academy] Review, January–July 2000 issue.
In October 1998 the British Academy invited a number of distinguished academics and researchers to present papers at a one-day symposium designed to bring together a number of perspectives on the issue of educational standards. The resulting publication, ‘Educational Standards’, is the first serious attempt to bring together such a distinguished collection of contributions on the topic. In this extract, Dr Mike Cresswell considers the problem of using public examination results as monitors of changes in educational standards over time.
The British Academy aims to publish a regular account of its activities by means of its new biannual ‘Review’. This issue of the ‘Review’ covers events and activities that took place during the first six months of the year, up to and including the AGM which took place in early July 2000. This is the third issue of the ‘Review’.
