Analyzing and Utilizing Assessment Data for Better Learning Outcomes

Countries across the globe are reaching to learning assessments as a way of improving educational outcomes. Large-scale data on learning outcomes is increasingly available in the Asia-Pacific region, whether through participation in national, regional, or international assessments. However, the use of this data for evidence-based policy making remains limited. One of the primary reasons for this is insufficient institutional capacity of countries to analyze such data and utilize the results for evidence-based policies. In order to address this challenge, UNESCO Bangkok launched a regional programme called “Learning Enablers for Asia and the Pacific” (LEAP), under the platform of NEQMAP. The outcome of this regional programme is this synthesis report, combining information from a regional mapping survey on learning assessments as well as 10 case studies that analyzed national, regional, or international assessment data with the aim to identify what conditions may significantly impact learning outcomes.
