PhD Project

Title: Faith in Numbers? The unheeded prehistory of education monitoring, 1890s-1920s

The PhD project is supervised by Prof. Dr. Sotiria Grek and Prof. Dr. Lindsay Paterson. The project investigates the discursive roots and normative characteristics of standardisation and quantification in education monitoring as it materialised at the turn of the 19th century. It is envisaged that the synthesis of the study’s findings will lead to a critical examination of the ways this early history of education measurement can help illuminate and explain more recent education monitoring agendas.
