Investing in Learning: the Case for Strengthening the Collection and Use of Learning Assessment Data in EiE Contexts

This policy paper is for EiE sector donors, both in humanitarian and protracted crisis contexts, national governments and humanitarian and development agencies. It provides guidance on how to increase and improve the measurement of holistic learning outcomes for crisis-affected learners. 

The paper builds on two extensive mapping reports commissioned by the Quality and Equitable Learning Outcomes (QELO) work stream within INEE's Education Policy Working Group. The mapping reports examined academic and social and emotional learning assessment guidance documents, tools and program approaches and their applicability in measuring learning outcomes in EiE contexts.
