This publication presents the outcomes of a distance education course on development and dissemination of indicators used for educational planning. The course took place from November 2000 to February 2001 and was attended by representatives from the ministries of education of Brazil, Cambodia, Estonia, Gambia, Lithuania, and Thailand. The overall objective of the course was to strengthen national capacities and, in particular, to provide planners and managers with the skills necessary to improve the use of databases and to develop indicators on the functioning of the education system. This publication presents the practical work carried out by the course participants. While the individual documents contained in this publication are different for each country, all were prepared with two general objectives in mind: (1) to increase the access rate to compulsory education, and (2) to improve the quality of compulsory education. Each country's document and collection of statistics is unique to its situation and illustrates the different possibilities for presenting the same indicator. The document preparers chose different types of figures to represent, for example, the evolution of the gross enrollment rate or disparities between the sexes. The data are presented through graphs, charts, and tables. (WFA)
