Incentives and Accountability in Education: A Literature Review

The objective of this review was to learn from the successes and failures of implementing incentive and accountability mechanisms in education worldwide, to draw lessons that can be applied specifically to developing countries. The approach to the review was simple: to examine some recurrent threads or themes that suggest successful approaches and to typify to any extent possible the circumstances under which incentives and accountability succeed or fail. As such, the review begins with an examination of incentives and accountability as policy options in education, continuing later with a review of accountability and its relationship with school governance, democratic participation, and the assessment of learning.
