The Pacific Island nations are in the process of transforming education to support all learners through the application of more inclusive approaches. In order to measure progress, they are working collaboratively to develop a set of local and contextually applicable indicators for inclusive education. This article reports the initial step in this process. A detailed review of literature about the Pacific Islands highlights 10 themes that are highly pertinent to the monitoring of inclusive education (IE) in the region. The article reviews these themes across the continuum of input, process, and outcomes for IE, at 3 levels of implementation: "micro," "meso," and "macro." While disability-inclusive indicators for measuring IE within the Pacific Islands are very limited at present, the article also identifies strategies, good practices, government recommendations, and outcomes from across the region that educators may use to inform the development of inclusive practices.
