Workshop: Analyzing and Understanding Learning Assessment for Evidence-Based Policy Making

Background:

In order to improve the use of student learning assessment data in strengthening education systems, and to support evidence-based policy making in improving education quality, UNESCO’s Asia-Pacific Regional Bureau for Education (UNESCO Bangkok) launched a regional programme called “Learning Enablers for Asia and Pacific” (LEAP).

LEAP programme aims to develop capacity of the Member States in designing and implementing policies to improve learning based on evidence. For the implementation of the activities of LEAP, UNESCO Bangkok  leverages the Network on Education Quality Monitoring in the Asia-Pacific (NEQMAP), a regional platform established in 2013 with an aim to improve the quality of learning in the Asia-Pacific region by enhancing the use of student learning assessment to strengthen education systems.

The programme was launched with the capacity development workshop hosted by UNESCO Bangkok from 14-18 September 2015 in Bangkok, Thailand. The workshop aimed to build capacity in analyzing assessment data and utilizing evidence to better inform education policy and planning.
