Abstract: This paper is aimed at casting new light on the assessment of secondary schools’ performance in Portugal by considering data from the Programme for International Student Assessment 2015. We use the Weighted Russel Directional Distance approach and establish an equivalence model between this Data Envelopment Analysis model and the super-ideal point model, which is then combined with an interactive algorithm. Besides, a procedure to perform robustness analysis has been proposed, allowing decision-makers to understand how sensitive the efficiency of each school to data variation is.
