RISE Booklet: Contribution to Improving the Quality of Learning

RISE Indonesia has shown that high-quality evidence, participatory engagements with policymakers, and a focus on real-world problem solving can bring about reform. The challenge now is to match the scale of the problem to how we can apply these methods to a still developing country with three time zones and speaks 762 languages. We’re on the right track, but we’re not there yet.  

The system is massive, with 3 million teachers and 69 million students at primary and secondary levels. It is highly decentralized, meaning that 500+ local governments can autonomously set their own education policies. And without specific recovery policies, the significant learning loss due to prolonged school closures will likely worsen the learning crisis. We intend to continue working with policymakers on these issues, together with any global partners who share the same concerns.

Forum of Development Studies: Assessment of Children's Literacy and Numeracy Skills

Improving the quality of learning requires assessment of learning outcomes. The assessment can be used to measure learning outcomes, evaluate educational policies, and measure the impact of education policies, and compare an education system with other education systems. Assessment of learning outcomes also functions as a measure of student skill and teacher quality. Aside from being carried out in formal institutions, assessments can also be done by the community.
