The Educational Policy Analysis Training Workshop is designed to provide training in quick response analysis to typical policy issues encountered in developing countries. The workshop emphasizes working in small groups, approaching problems from a variety of analytic standpoints and presenting understandable and persuasive conclusions for use by policymakers unfamiliar with quantitative techniques. This exercise manual helps teach the analytical and technical skills necessary to conduct the educational policy analyses that are contained in the case studies. Each of the nine sets of exercises utilizes a case study concerned with improving the "quality" of primary school teachers in a particular developing country. The exercises are: Understand the Problem, Plan the Analyses, Describe the Current Situation, Restate the Problem, Generate and Narrow Alternatives, and Prepare Final Report. The exercises are done in small groups of four to eight people with a facilitator for each group. The groups read and discuss the exercises and subexercises, reach conclusions, and present a written report and an oral presentation on the case study. (JPT)
