Literacy Assessment and Monitoring Programme
Jordan has been selected, together with Morocco and Palestine, by the UNESCO Institute of Statistics as one of the pilot Literacy Assessment and Monitoring Programme (LAMP) countries to develop and test literacy survey instruments. LAMP provides valid, reliable, comparable and interpretable literacy data through carefully conceived and tested instruments. The major tasks and actions of the project are the establishment of Technical and Supervisory Committees, capacity building workshops on LAMP survey instruments and piloting of the survey instruments. In 2009, several capacity building workshops were carried out in Jordan and an international workshop for all the LAMP pilot countries was organized with funding from the Canadian International Development Agency (CIDA).
