Bangladesh, Primary School Performance Monitoring Project (Asian Development Bank), 1998-2001

As education systems decentralize and schools attain a measure of autonomy, monitoring and evaluation (M&E) of an individual school becomes essential to maintain the effectiveness of the overall system. Working with some 280 schools, AED and a government technical team developed and tested indicators and measures for local administrators, communities, and schools to assess school performance. The resulting set of M&E tools enables a school community to assess its own performance in four major areas: supporting inputs, enabling conditions, school climate, and the teaching-learning process. Throughout Bangladesh, using this new set of tools, school directors, teachers, and parent committees now are able to compare their school’s performance against meaningful indicators and plan step-by-step improvements.
