First Meeting of the Learning Metrics Task 


The Learning Metrics Task Force, convened by the UNESCO Institute for Statistics and the Center for Universal Education at the Brookings Institution, will be meeting for the first time, in person, from 27-28 September in New York.


The main objectives of the meeting are to:

  • Review results of the consultation process concerning the document, “Proposed Competencies for Learning Outcomes: Early Childhood, Primary, and Post-Primary”, which was circulated for public comment in August 2012. To date, more than 400 people in at least 45 countries have provided feedback on how learning might be measured at the global level.
  • Discuss and make final decisions on the recommendations of the Standards Working Group of technical experts which began meeting electronically in June 2012.  
  • Identify and discuss additional opportunities for informing the post-2015 agenda.
  • Evaluate processes and progress to date and identify improvements if necessary.

Opportunities to get involved


To ensure input from a broad spectrum of stakeholders, the work of the Task force will be highly consultative, providing multiple opportunities for comment on discussion documents and recommendations through an online discussion forum and in-person consultations. 


Current opportunities include: 

  • Circulate and provide feedback on discussion documents. The discussion document, "Multi-Country Assessments of Learning" is available online for feedback. Two subsequent documents, “Issues in Global Learning Assessment,” and “National Assessments of Learning,” will be available for comment in fall 2012.
  • Participate in a working group. The Standards Working Group of technical experts from research institutions, governments, non-governmental organizations, private sector companies, and UN agencies is meeting electronically from June to October 2012. Members were recruited through an open application process and were selected based on their experience developing, implementing, and/or measuring progress toward learning standards. The call for applications for the Measures and Methods Working Group is available now, and in October 2012 the call will go out for the Implementation Working Group.
