In Event: Sustainable development through measurement in learning: perspectives from international organizations and country
The UIS, as the custodian agency for reporting on the Sustainable Development Goals, has the primary task to develop indicators with guidelines, methodologies and tools for countries to report their data. The UIS, through the Global Alliance to Monitor Learning (GAML), has developed methodologies and tools, under each respective conceptual, methodology and reporting framework, for various learning Indicators.
A further UIS goal is to facilitate the use of existing national and cross-national assessments for measuring and reporting learning outcomes for the SDGs. Generating comparability while allowing for latitude in the use of specific assessments is a challenging technical task that the current proposal aims to address. Given the amount of learning assessment data available for indicator 4.1.1, the UIS is more advanced in the technical development of indicator 4.1.1. Therefore, indicator 4.1.1 will be used as an example to inform on the learning indicator development process.
