Social Impact is a global development management consulting firm. We provide a full range of monitoring, evaluation, strategic planning, and capacity building services to advance development effectiveness. We work across all development sectors including democracy and governance, health and education, the environment, and economic growth. Since 1997, we have worked in over 100 countries for clients such as US government agencies, bilateral donors, multilateral development banks, foundations, and nonprofits.

Project Background:

The USAID/Ghana Partnership for Education aims to improve reading performance at the primary level in Math and English in P4 and P6. The 2018 National Education Assessment, a curriculum-aligned written test assessing pupil performance in English language and mathematics, will directly contribute to the measurement of this goal. Evaluating Systems (ES), the USAID: Partnership for Education M&E Systems partner, will leverage its existing work to promote monitoring and evaluation system use within the Ministry of Education and Ghana Education Service. Building off of its current progress in the Education Management Information System, the National Education Strategic Plan (NESP), the Basic Education Research Agenda and the 2017 and 2019 Early Grade Reading Assessment and Early Grade Mathematics Assessment impact evaluations, ES will link, support and sustain the administration of the 2018 NEA. Having built strong relationships within the MOE and GES, and conducted reading or math assessments in over 600 schools with approximately 15,000 primary school children in 2017, ES is prepared to build upon this successful activity as well as earlier NEA rounds, effectively utilizing and improving upon the previously developed tools and protocols.
