1/4 Sheet = 9x13
1/3 Sheet = 11x15
1/2 Sheet = 12x18
Full Sheet = 16x24 (baked in 18x26 Bun pan with bakeable cardboard tray).

Additional full sheet info:
A commercial Bun pan is 18" x 26" (outside measurement), and because they are tapered for nesting or making them stackable, the inside measurement is 16.5" x 24.5".

A commercial full sheet is 16" x 24". They are baked in 16" x 24" bakeable cardboard trays that fit into the Bun pans (flat surface portion) which are used during baking for support and handling purposes.

A true commercial full sheet (16" x 24") serves 96 (unit wt. 106-124 oz.).

You will get different answers but what helps the most is to match the tin to the board that is sold for whichever size you want.

Here in the US that would be a 10x7 for a "1/4 sheet"

and a 12x16 for a "1/2 sheet"

 

No use buying say a 9x13 tin and think you will get a board and box for it to fit on/in :(    Yes, one can cut their own boards but not boxes.  As an example: a 9x13 would have to be put on a board/in a box for a 1/2 sheet thereby giving you much more board room than looks nice.

I never noticed that before.   It is such a popular size I am surprised they don't make boards and boxes for them.

 

You can also get a full sheet cake by butting together two half sheet cakes.  The full sheet cake probably won't fit in your regular oven.

AA 9x13" quarter sheet cake fits fine in a standard 10x14" cake box, it's a little tight but it works.
