The purpose of the Knowledge Platform is to improve the measurement of learning, as well as the use of assessments to improve learning, by
EDUCATION SYSTEM CONSULTATIONS
To ensure that the website is a good fit with the needs of users, it is important to consult with potential end users. The purpose of the consultations will be to better understand the needs and challenges faced by assessment practitioners in order to adapt and contextualize the guidance the platform will provide. The purpose is also to identify strengths, good practice examples, challenges and bottlenecks in current assessment activities in the region.
During the three-day meeting in Kathmandu between UNICEF ROSA, CSF and ACER in January 2019, a number of consultations were undertaken with assessment practitioners in Nepal. Additional consultations will take place in two to four other countries in South Asia by phone or through field visits, as well as in several states in India. Members of the ACER India team will also draw on their experiences working with and building the capacity of assessment teams in Afghanistan, Bangladesh, Bhutan, India (at the national level and in a number of states) and Nepal.
