Translated title of the contribution: Los desafíos que plantea la generación de datos

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle in a journalpeer-review


This article identifies some major issues regarding the generation and availability of data on youth and adult education. It discusses the production of data on programmes and enrolment, as well as financing and issues related to the identification of the target populations. A special focus is set on the realm of testing skills and competences, given their complexity as well as the paramount profile and importance that they have acquired in recent years. The article stresses the fact that technical attributes of data generation endeavours are contingent upon their purposes. A non-technocratic and more politically-sensitive approach to data generation is promoted.
