Improving Access to Data for Education Decision Making in Côte d’Ivoire

January 28th, 2022 | News


World Education is improving policy development and decision making in the education sector in Côte d’Ivoire by providing technical assistance to the Ministry of Education (MENA) on the new initiative that will assess student learning. For 10 years, World Education has been committed to strengthening institutions that support education in Côte d’Ivoire, providing organizational and technical capacity-building support.

This new project, Establishment of Integrated Education Management and Information System (EMIS or SIGE in French) and National and International Student Assessment Program project, implemented in partnership with Catalyseur de Development and funded by the Millennium Challenge Account – Côte d’Ivoire (MCA-Côte d’Ivoire), is operating in the Gbêkê and San Pedro regions of Côte d’Ivoire.

The project will assess current systems for collecting and analyzing educational data and provide recommendations for improvement, and will also assist the Department of Monitoring of Programs and MCA-Côte d’Ivoire in developing and carrying out student assessments.

As part of the work under the first objective, World Education will help create an integrated system to collect data in the Gbêkê and San Pedro regions and stored in a centralized data platform. The integrated EMIS will focus on 5 areas: human resources, regularly collected education sector data, schools management, end-of-school examinations, and national and international student assessments

By integrating data from different departments of the MENA, decision-makers will not only have improved access to the data they need for decision-making, but through this project, they will also be equipped with the skills and the knowledge to conduct the analysis needed to make evidence-based decisions for policy development and routine education management.
