Navigating Educational Development Data for EiE
INEE hosted a multi-part webinar series from the USAID Middle East Education Research, Training, and Support (MEERS) program, implemented by Social Impact and FHI 360. The series was titled “The 4Ws of Education in Emergencies (EiE) Data: Who has What data? Where can I find it? And Why is this so complicated?”.
The second webinar in this series focuses on educational development data and its relevance to EiE. The webinar begins with an introduction to the educational development data ecosystem, examining sources and availability of data. Next, the webinar provides in-depth looks into six sources of educational development data, including the UNESCO Institute for Statistics (UIS), World Bank Education Statistics (EdStats), the Education Policy and Data Center (EPDC), national Education Management Information Systems (EMIS), International Large-Scale Learning Assessments (ILSAs), and additional UN data sources. Overviews of each source includes discussions of their pros and cons for EiE practitioners with integrated navigation activities. The webinar concludes with a discussion of how these sources of educational development data can be used for EiE
