Grants to this Grantee
for strengthening learning outcomes measurement globally  
This grant will allow the UNESCO Institute for Statistics to continue and deepen work begun under the Learning Metrics Task Force. The Institute will build consensus and lead technical work to define learning indicators that are expected to be adopted for tracking the 2030 Sustainable Development Goals related to education. It will also expand its mapping of national assessments, including alternative and citizen-generated learning assessments, and develop and disseminate quality standards.
for phase II of the global Learning Metrics Task Force  
This grant to UNESCO’s Institute for Statistics will support the next phase of the Learning Metrics Task Force, so that its recommendations at the U.N. General Assembly in September 2013 can be put into action. The Institute for Statistics will focus on developing technical frameworks and ensuring that the data required to produce learning indicators are available and reliable. Through its multicountry Observatory of Learning Outcomes, it will disseminate these tools. The Institute for Statistics will work in collaboration with education experts and the World Bank, the Center for Universal Education at Brookings, the Global Partnership for Education, and other partners.
