Evaluation of Southern and Eastern African Consortium for Monitoring Educational Quality (SACMEQ) / International Institute for Educational Planning (IIEP)

August 2008 - The Southern and Eastern Africa Consortium for Monitoring Educational Quality (SACMEQ) is an independent organization which functions with the SACMEQ Assembly of Ministers (made up of members from a consortium of countries) making up the SACMEQ Governing Board.

SACMEQ.jpgSACMEQ works closely with the International Institute for Educational Planning (IIEP) to undertake integrated research and training activities for two key purposes: 

  • To expand opportunities for educational planners to gain the technical skills required to monitor and evaluate the quality of basic education; and 

  • To generate information that can be used by decision makers to plan and improve the quality of education.



The evaluation of SACMEQ was part of a broader evaluation project of three UNESCO international assessment programs. The purpose of the evaluation was to assess the impact of UNESCO’s work in the area of monitoring of learning achievements, and most specifically, to examine the development of SACMEQ as a capacity building effort and as an assessment system for collecting policy relevant data.
