United Nations Children's Fund, New York, NY.; United Nations Educational, Scientific, and Cultural Organization, Paris (France).
The joint UNESCO-UNICEF Monitoring Education-for-All Goals Project was launched in September 1992. The first phase of the project was implemented in five pilot countries (China, Jordan, Mali, Mauritius, and Morocco) with the express aim of providing national decision makers with practical tools for monitoring basic education in their countries and building national capacities. Each pilot country has developed a simple, workable, and sustainable methodology for monitoring basic education with a focus on learning achievement in terms of literacy, numeracy, life skills, and other factors that influence achievement. Each country has established a national task force, identified representative samples of schools and students, and conducted pilot tests of survey instruments and data analysis. Each country has begun writing a national report. The second year of the project will add eight countries, which will draw on the experiences of the pioneer five to develop their own monitoring systems. Eight tables present study findings, and seven tables in two appendixes present supplemental detail. (Contains 22 references.) (SLD)
