Group Submission Type: Refereed Round-Table Session
Stakeholders working to promote children’s learning in emergency contexts are increasingly using measurement tools to monitor and evaluate program impact and quality. Yet to ensure high-quality data, stakeholders cannot “plug and play” assessments. They must (1) identify and conceptualize the skills to be assessed; (2) contextually adapt the measure; (3) appropriately analyze and interpret results; and (4) ensure coordination and consensus for use at scale. In this session, 4 research-practice-policy partnerships developing tools as part of a MENAT measurement consortium will share opportunities and challenges they faced at one of these stages in order to identify best-practice strategies for measure adaptation and use.
