The Learning Metrics Task Force, established by UNESCO’s Institute for Statistics and the Center for Universal Education at the Brookings Institution, has just published a report on the competencies and knowledge that all children should master in order to succeed in life.

The Task Force was organized as a response to the shift toward a much greater emphasis on learning in the global discussion of education. It plans to publish three reports aimed at helping countries measure and improve learning outcomes for children and youth.

The report identifies seven learning domains that are important, going beyond the traditional areas of literacy, numeracy, and science to include social, communication, and character skills. In two future reports, the Task Force will explore the feasibility of assessing the seven learning domains, and will develop a series of recommendations regarding how assessments can be used to improve education policy and learning outcomes.
