    Abstract

    In past decades, political and educational discussions have increasingly raised questions about the quality of education. For monitoring the quality of education. programs for national assessment of educational progress were implemented in many countries. Initially most of these programs heavily emphasized the measurement of educational achievement of national samples of students in basic school subjects. However, the increasing awareness
    of the usefulness of these monitoring systems resulted in a need for indicators which can help in tracing the deficits and clues for taking measures for improving educational outcomes. A potential powerful set of indicators dealing with the substance of education can be found in the curriculum.
