The pandemic represents the greatest disruption to education in history. School closures will impact educational inequalities, dropout rates, and learning outcomes. How can we measure and evaluate these effects? Do our educational systems have effective, simple, and easily applied diagnostic tools to monitor these outcomes? What can civil society do about this situation?
In this seminar we will discuss how to evaluate learning in a pandemic context. We will present ICAN, Common International Assessment of Basic Numeracy, from the Citizen Action Network for Learning (PAL͕). ICAN is an open source assessment developed through collaboration among countries in the Southern Hemisphere and aligned with Sustainable Development Goals (ODS 4.1.1(a)). ICAN serves to establish rapid and easily replicable diagnostics for the entire region.
