Syria Holistic Assessment Pilot
Country / date: Syria, 2018-2019
Partner: Save the Children International
Integrity piloted a newly-developed holistic education assessment instrument across northern Syria. The pilot was in support of Save the Children’s implementation of an Education in Crisis and Conflict (EiCC) capacity development programme funded through the Whole of Syria Education Cluster with the Education Cannot Wait fund. The assessment tool was designed for Grade 2 and Grade 3 children and included three domains: reading skills, math skills, and social and emotional skills. Integrity administered the tool to 1,500 students in northwest and northeast Syria using a rigorous sampling methodology that achieved gender parity, representative geographic sampling and interrater reliability.
