Thesis (M.P.P.)--Georgetown University, 2009.; Includes bibliographical references. Improving the quality of education systems is one of the most important challenges faced by Latin American governments. In order to achieve this goal, Chile has introduced several reforms such as the National System for Assessing School Performance (SNED). The System provides monetary incentives to teachers mainly based on students' performance on national standardized tests. This study shows that reading, mathematical and scientific literacy measured by PISA-2006 assessments are positively related with attendance at schools awarded by SNED-2006, after controlling for individual socio-economical factors as well as school quality factors. Schools awarded by SNED-2006 not only offered higher education quality compared to their peers in terms of national curriculum coverage, but they also contributed to develop higher competences relevant to future personal, social and economic well being among their students.
