Abstract

The definition of quality education is a very complex issue. One commonly used definition is that quality education is the one that meets the educational (developmental) needs of its users, or education that is tailored to the users. It is difficult to measure because there are many factors affecting it. Therefore it cannot be defined uniquely and as independent from the educational environment. The results themselves are not a sufficient indicator of the quality achieved. The assessment of the achieved level of quality in education should be based on comparing the achievements in a given situation to the previously set goals and standards. As one of the manners of monitoring and evaluation of the work of schools is through external evaluation which aims to provide a high degree of objectivity, this paper presents a review of some of the ways of external assessment that are being applied in the educational institutions in the Republic of Macedonia.
