Workshop on Measurement of Basic Education Outcomes
May 12-13, 2015Washington D.C., U.S.A.

This one-and-a-half day workshop organized by the Strategic Impact Evaluation Fund at the World Bank and New York University’s Global TIES for Children: Transforming Intervention Effectiveness and Scale brought together researchers in the field of psychology, education, and economics to discuss ways of measuring middle childhood and adolescent (MCA) outcomes and classroom, and education-critical family and community settings processes.

The World Bank’s Strategic Impact Evaluation Fund (SIEF) and New York University’s Global TIES for Children: Transforming Intervention Effectiveness and Scale brought together investigators from SIEF impact evaluations and other researchers working on education measurement. The workshop provided an opportunity to learn about different instruments to measure basic education (intermediate and final) outcomes and to share experiences with fellow researchers. Researchers in the field of psychology, education, and economics discussed ways of measuring middle childhood and adolescent outcomes and classroom, and education-critical family and community settings processes.

During the first day of the event, speakers presented their research and use of instruments. The second day was focused on future directions for the measurement of final outcomes within basic education programs.
